Still Life with a Cup of Cocoa

Recently my 2nd graders had the opportunity to look at some very colorful work by a Brazilian artist named Romare Britto.  He is famous for not only his bright colors, but also his use of patterns outlined with bold black lines.  We took this chance to study some of his "still life" art and get ideas for our own still life.  Imagine a cold winter day and coming inside to a warm cup of cocoa.....

The Art of Asia

Happy Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rooster! Using Chinese New Year as our starting point, the 1st grade and 2nd grade found inspiration in the art of China. The first graders learned about the importance of dragons in the Chinese culture. The third graders studied authentic Chinese landscapes. Please enjoy this art from a variety of 1st and 3rd grade classes.
