Origami, Modular Origami, & Kirigami

2nd grade students create these origami swans after reading "Tree of Cranes." I chose swans which are much easier than the crane.
Modular Origami flowers created by sixth grade. ( more to come)

Kirigami snowflakes also created by sixth grade students.

Holiday "Action Jackson"

2nd grade students viewed art work created by Pollock and then created their own individual holiday action paintings!

Organic Color Wheels

I decided to switch up our color wheels this year and the results were great! Students reviewed organic lines and then used these lines to create organic color wheels.


























Primary -Secondary Color Review

Second grade students reviewed their primary and secondary colors by creating these wonderful landscape reflections. These were completed only using the primary colors!
