Below are some examples of artwork we make in Kindergarten.  Projects are ever-changing as we continue to explore in new and exciting ways.

         
Animal Portraits
Students studied the shapes of animal's bodies and then illustrated their findings. Students then discovered the textures of their animal and added the fur, scales and feather textures to their animals bodies. They then created a setting for their animal portrait as well.

           
Googly Eyes
Students received a piece of paper with two googly eyes glued on. Students had to create something for the eyes to belong to. Could they belong to a fish? A book? A flower? Students drew with pencil, then went over with a sharpie marker. They then colored their drawing in with crayon. Once the crayon was filled in, students painted over with watercolor. Each drawing is different and guided by the artist’s own personal creativity.
              

Self-Portraits
Students studied themselves and the way their faces looked. After learning some drawing techniques and tricks to create basic shapes for their faces, students then added details of their personal features that makes them unique!

    

Line Abstractions
Students painted rainbow fields of color with tempera paint. Students then added all sorts of lines and shapes on top of the colored composition.

       
Primary Colored Fish
    Artists printed with sponges in the shape of a fish using the primary colors. Students learned that the primary colors (red, yellow and blue) are the most important colors in the rainbow because they help create all the other colors (the secondary colors of orange, green and purple).  After printing the fish, students embellished their prints with orange, green and purple oil pastels, adding fins, eyes, lips and plants.

 

Neighborhood Collages
Students used shapes cut out from colored construction paper such as circles, squares, rectangles and triangles.  Student created their neighborhood at night, creating houses, cars, trees, and even traffic lights. Students learned that shapes can create anything, even their neighborhood!


Texture Pinch Pots
               Students received a piece of clay and had to roll their piece of clay into a ball. They then  had to use their thumbs to create a small pot, known as a pinch pot. Students then used clay tools to create different textures on their pinch pot, adding a sense of individuality to their work.
