December Art Update
Collins artists have been working well to create original art. Kinder through first grade has been discussing the elements of art and how those are like ingredients to express ourselves. Second grade through fourth grade students studied winter landscapes by Kandinsky and Van Gogh and created their own winter landscapes while practicing oil pastel blending techniques. While our fifth graders have studied birch trees and learned oil pastel blending techniques to show values of their chosen colors.
