3rd graders learned about collage artist, Romare Bearden. They created their own self-portrait collages using magazine scraps.
2nd grade students have been creating artwork inspired by Claude Monet. We learned about the French impressionist painter and how he used his garden as inspiration for his work. He was concerned about painting the reflection of light in his work. Up close, his work looked like blobs and smears. But from far away, his work revealed beautiful lily pads, flowers, and water. Students created these textured collages and clay lily pad sculptures as well.
