Painters in action December 11, 2012

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 7:08 pm

The second graders are painting abstract compositions made from stencils.  We talked about how artists achieve “movement” in their paintings, even though the paintings don’t move at all.  Their swirly, wiggly, dancing shapes were much more interesting than squares and circles.

Now, the students are painting the drawing.  They are ‘battling’ two colors together to make a third color inside every shape.  This will begin a conversation about warm and cool colors.
