1st Grade: Coming to a Close

Recently, First Grade got a chance to name their splatter paintings from their Jackson Pollock activity. They named their work and shared with the class why they picked what they did. Most of the names revolved around the color choices and how they made a person feel. I was really happy to see them talking about what they imagined when they looked at the paintings. It’s good practice for deciphering more complex works later on. Afterwards, they started a group project for the different types of art. Each group was given a collection of terms and was asked to create a poster to help them teach the class about their topics. We had Impressionism, Pointillism, De Stijl, Cubism, Cityscape, Landscape, Seascape, Portrait, Self-Portrait, and Still Life. So far, we’ve seen two groups’ presentations and they did wonderfully! I look forward to seeing the next two tomorrow.
