Throughout September the First grader's studied Van Gogh, emphasizing his still life studies. We focused on composition and filling the space of the canvas. As the sunflower season came to an end, the students enjoyed sharing stories about sunflowers they have seen in their environment. Here is Henry's Sunflowers. Henry told me the first time I met him that he wants to be an art teacher when he grows up because he loves artwork, and teaching others. I enjoyed my time working with him.
Following Be Nice to Spiders the Kindergarten's spun their own webs rolling a marble coated in tempera paint over their cut out matboard circle in a pie tin.
