Second grade art students are having a great time drawing from observation! We have a still-life arrangement on a table in our room. Students are using school chalk and chalk pastels to complete these works of art.
First grade students traveled to the pumpkin patch last month with their classroom teacher. In the library, Mrs. Young read a story about pumpkins and in art class, students enjoyed drawing and painting a still life set-up of pumpkins. Students delighted in describing the pumpkins they saw on their field trip adventure!
I am excited about attending the Alabama Art Education Association State Conference in Florence! It will be great to converse with art educators and attend workshops. I always learn so much at our conference.
