A Peek into Art Class September 2017

Art Class

By: Ms. Faith

For the first month of art class, the students learned about primary colors, the color wheel, how we are all unique and using our senses. They also learned about two artists, Piet Mondrian and Henri Matisse. Henri Matisse was a French artist who was known for his use of color and for his paintings. Piet Mondrian was a Dutch abstract artist who had a huge impact on 20th century art.

These students are working on renditions of Mondran’s Composition ll in Red, Blue, and Yellow. They learned about primary colors, lines, and how to use glue sticks with this project.


The students learned what a self portrait is. We talked about how everyone is different and special. They looked in the mirror at themselves and looked at their features.


To celebrate fall, the young artists made fall trees using cut up vegetable to stamp in paint for the leaves. Since the theme that week was the five senses, we talked about how the vegetables looked, smelled, and felt.
