These past 2 weeks second graders embarked on a wonderful journey of creating ' ishy floral still lifes". Week one, I brought in bouquets of garden flowers. We learned how to "air draw".. shut one eye and trace what we see with our pointer finger which helps us flatten the world so we can draw on a 2-D piece of paper. Beyond that we each just painted what we saw in our own 'ishy style". Week two we added color and learned a " blending technique" with oil pastels. Pictured here are some 2nd graders intently painting their flowers. Below I have embedded a slide show of finished pictures by Mrs. Tate's 2nd grade artists.
Going forward I will try to feature each 2nd grade classes' work at least once on this blog this year.
