5th grade Cartoon Sports Heads

5th graders had fun creating these Cartoon Sports Heads on a day when Mrs. T. was out of the building. They studied cartooning and facial expressions then picked their favorite sport to create the head of their cartoon! Hilarious!

5th grade Gustav Klimt Tree Landscapes

5th graders studied the art of Gustav Klimt. They learned about how his father was a gold engraver which probably started his love of gold. Klimt put gold leaf into many of his paintings and so we used some sparkle in our paintings as well!

After studying "The tree of Life" we created our own tree landscapes with jewels and glitter. They are absolutely frame worthy!

4th grade Kandinsky Abstract art

4th graders are having fun creating abstract art in the style of Wassily Kandinsky! They learned about how his art is different from realistic art and interesting facts about his life.

Each artist chose their own color scheme such as: warm, cold, primary, secondary or neutral colors. They started with free flowing lines and when they finished, we had fun "seeing" things in our abstract pictures. After adding patterns and tracing, we will be done!
