The first week of rock painting was a blast! We still have more to go to complete our landscaping project. Your Young Artist has used acrylic paint to decorate several stones that will be included in this rock garden. This will be a permanent display at Wegienka to be enjoyed for years to come. This project will continue this coming week. Make sure your Young Artist has an art shirt to keep their school clothes clean!

Welcome back! 1st grade artists will be starting the year with two book-based projects. To begin, we will be taking part in a school-wide installation inspired by the book Only One You by Linda Kranz. Each artist will be given a stone to decorate using acrylic paint. The stones will all be displayed on the school grounds to be enjoyed for years to come.
Up next, we will spend some time with The Gruffalo! Your young artist will use basic shapes to illustrate a scene from the book.
First grade art lessons will support the following "I can" statements:
I can use various line types to create a composition.
I can use primary colors to create a composition.
I can demonstrate the pinch/pull technique in clay.
I can use shapes to construct a composition to build recognizable forms.
I can create a piece of artwork that demonstrates bilateral symmetry.
I can use overlapping to create depth in a work of art.
