First grade students have been learning about the art & culture of the Navajo Indians. The photos below show images of students at work on their creative "blanket" designs inspired by the Navajo study. Students used their previous knowledge of line, shape, color, and pattern to create a design on white paper using washable markers. Afterwards, the artwork was sprayed with water to make colors blend together, wadded up, unfolded, and left to dry until the next art time. The results were amazing!
