Wow! I can’t believe that I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks, but then again, student teaching at an elementary school has been really busy for me! I think eventually I will get a handle on remembering to take lots of pictures and post them at least once a week. I’ve been working with the students at Scio Central School, and they are amazing! They come to the art room excited to be here and create! It’s amazing to me what they are able to do and what their brains are working through.
Here are some first graders working on their dinosaur paintings, they first drew out their assigned dino (they were learning about them for the science fair so they each had a specific dino to draw) Then they went over what they drew with a black marker and they finally painted them in with tempera paint. I encouraged them to use a lot of bright colors and have fun with it! And they really did!!
