We love studio time to just create. The first grade artists used pastels and paint to make these big 18x24 paintings. They are given no guidelines and are encouraged to use their imaginations. This is when we achieve flow in the studio. (Flow is when the student is completely absorbed into the project.)

talk about architecture. The second grade was amazed to see so many elements of architecture in our studio. We watch a power point on houses of the world and realized that not everyone lives in the same kind of structures. We discussed form+function in regards to our creations.
We started sketching our structures today. The students had to add seven elements of architecture to their creations. We are using books and booklets that are filled with different elements as resources.
Wow! I want to live in these houses.

The fourth grade started a still life drawing. The artists started with blind contour line drawings, contour line drawings and line drawings. Many of the artists could not quite keep themselves from looking at their papers for the blind exercise so I had them make their drawing in a bag. The drawings were completed with oil pastels.
