Exploring Color

The 4th, 5th and 6th Graders have just finished their unit on Color Exploration.  They learned about, primary, secondary and tertiary colors.  They mixed up different values of a single color, divided the color wheel into warm and cool colors and imagined different groups of analogous colors.  They paired up complimentary colors and mixed up neutrals and created several paintings.  Here is a short video so you can see our color theorists at work.  Enjoy the show!

Pre-K Visits the Art Room

It was so much fun to be visited by the Pre-K today as they got their first introduction to the Art room.  They created mini framed Still Life Paintings using sharpie and watercolors.  I'm looking forward to seeing some of you in Kindergarten next year!
