This week, students will cut out their symmetrical paintings of butterflies and glue them to a new paper. Colors will be added using chalk pastels.
The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday classes will start a lesson Monet. They will look at his waterlily paintings and use chalk plus white paint to create the pond. The Thursday and Friday classes will miss art this week because the first graders will start practicing for their music program.
Groups D, B and E will start their ink painting of their tiger with background. Group B will practice some techniques before using the India Ink.
Groups A and C will view the images of Japanese tiger paintings and start drawing their tigers.
