You can find posts on our classroom blog by clicking HERE or here www.strokesofart.blogspot.com . There you'll find a few samples of what the Kindergarten and First Grade students are working on and what we plan to work on this year in Art class. Check back often to see what's new.
February is a month we'll celebrate our love of cute little pets in the Art room. The first graders are working on a 3 lesson project called "Puppy or Kitty in the Window". It's a fun and simple drawing lesson completed with bright watercolors. One of my personal favorites. The Kindergarten students will work on a cute favorite 2 lesson project called "Birds on a Wire".
Here I have listed website we used during our Animation Unit:
Click HERE at the abcya.com website. -- a basic animation program for First Graders. Can be played on PC only. (Not on iPads or tablets.)
Coming up in January, we will finish up our study of Animation with an especially fun activity by Crayola called Color Alive. With this activity we won't use the laptop computers but will utilize our tablets. This is an app that is free and available for both Apple and Android devices. With the Color Alive app, students will color a page with colors and designs of their choice, then scan the colored image and the image becomes animated! Here is the commercial by Crayola if you'd like an idea of what the app does, HERE.
By the end of the month, we will have put away the technology for a little while and dig out some paint and glue again. We plan to begin some mixed media projects inspired by penguins, walruses and cardinals. As always, I can't wait to see what our students create!
I totally love to receive letters, art work or notes from my students. If they want to write to me I will write them back!
