Foreground, middle ground, background...Finishing Kandinsky and Portraits

Third grade will be finishing up their Kandinsky style artwork unit this week by painting with watercolors.  Students made circles using crayons on their paper, these crayons create a resist, so colors don't mix into each other and turn everything brown.  After drawing the circles, they painted each box a variety of colors. 

1st and 2nd grade learned how to show things in the foreground, middle ground, and background.  Everything in the background is really far away so it will look small, everything in the middle ground is normal sized and everything in the foreground is HUGE.  They also learned what the Horizon line is and where to place it on their background.

Below are a few examples from each grade.

Fifth Grade finished their self portraits; in the background they drew things about them that they liked or pictures that would help someone who doesn't know them, to know a little bit about the artist.
