Mo Willems Pigeon

Mo Willems Pigeon

Our creative Kindergartners created these super cute pigeons inspired by author Mo Willems. First I showed them the book Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.  I also loved the clip where Mo Willems talks about the importance of reading as well as his own work, so I showed them this short clip. Next, I showed them how to draw Pigeon and then they painted the background with lines and shapes of every color!  These turned out so cute.

We have six students whose work will be on display at the LPS District Art Show, one student per grade level.  These kiddos definitely impressed me with their outstanding art! I am proud to have them represent Franklin for the 2016-2017 school year.

 

 

 

Colorful Owls!

Colorful Owls!

I think these owls by our kindergartners turned out so cute!  We did a guided drawing for the owls and then we talked about color!  The students learned about value as they colored parts of their owl with light, medium, and dark shades of the same color.  We then talked about choosing a good background color that would help their owls stand out and create contrast!

Little “punkins”

Little “punkins”

The kindies did a great job on these pumpkins!  Our goal was to learn about form and color.  We talked about how the curved lines help make the pumpkins appear to be more 3-dimensional.  We also learned how to paint in layers, starting with a yellow, adding orange, and finally red to help create form as well.  The kiddos learned how to make brown by mixing blue and orange together. Finally,they cut and glued their pumpkins to a patterned background paper that they chose.

2014 Highland Ranch Library Art Show

Every year we display student work at the Highlands Ranch Library.  The show is up for a month, and the best part is that there are so many people that get to see the show!  I am always very proud of the student’s work.  They all deserve this recognition as they work so hard.
