This week, First Grade started studying lines and motion. We spent a few days on lessons, and then started on our next project: a Seascape. We started by talking about the way waves move on the beach. Then we drew our guidelines and got started. With brushstrokes that copied the rolling of waves, we painted the ocean and created the first stages of movement.
The in-progress works are in the banner picture. Starting in the top left and moving right, the paintings belong to Isabella, Brayden, and Ethan on the first row, Ryan, Kate, and Lillian on the second row, Cormac, Russell, and Zoe on the third row, and Jonathan and Bladen on the last row.
