The Core Concepts and Skills
Grades K-2 The primary classes are creating a masterpiece using TEXTURE! We started with an artist version of the sun then added a touch of the sky using finger PAINT!!! That was so much fun! Finger-paint has a marvelous texture and looked great on our pictures. The landscape comes next using small pieces of fabric. We hope to bring these home right before winter break. Try to explore textures at home and outside by describing how something feels. In addition to our painting, we are also learning about fun facts about the sun.
Grades 3-5 The intermediate grades are finishing up a folded paper "Sugar Skull" in celebration of "Dia de los Muertos" or "Day of the Dead." We learned about simple machines by using a hinge to make the lower jaw move. The next BIG project is using fibers and making a weaving in a radial symmetrical design. The colors are decided according to our lesson on color; primary, secondary, monochromatic, complementary, cool, warm, or neutrals. The art of weaving is very relaxing and a great fine motor skill. It can also develop math skills by using specific patterns.
