|Kindergarten is learning about shapes and painting in their hand drawn lines. We studied Expressionist Swiss Artist, Paul Klee, and learned about his favorite cat named Bimbo. After looking at Paul's 'Cat and Bird' painting we painted our own!|
Fourth and fifth graders are learning about warm colors on the color wheel, organic lines from nature, patterns, symmetrical and asymmetrical patterning and backgrounds. This project covers all of these important concepts and gave students a chance to celebrate the beginning of autumn!
Please come support our middle schoolers and purchase one of their paintings for a minimum donation of $10 each. Our students have been working hard to get these finished and sold so they can give the money to the mayor who will purchase a memorial bench with the names of the local families lost in the flood in September 2015.

|Fourth grade illustration of the water cycle.|
This past week the fourth grade students were learning about the water cycle. The classroom teachers and I collaborated and this is what came out of our collaboration. Students illustrated and labeled the water cycle in a beautiful way!
Kindergarten, first and second grades finished painting their line owls. An emphasis was put on symmetry, line designs, bold color choices and learning to paint with watercolor.
Kindergarten and first grades are learning about the changing season and practicing stamping leaves and painting in the lines!
