Move-A-Thon Logos 2014

Move-A-Thon Logos 2014

The quest for the 2014 Move-A-Thon logo winner is on!  Students are creating some fantastic designs.  We discuss what a logo is, the purpose being to identify or brand a product or event.  This year’s theme is The Mustand 500: Engage to finish strong. The hard part will definitely be narrowing down all these designs into just ONE winner for our logo design.

Our second graders learned about tints & shades in this project.  Each student was able to mix their own colors, as well as choose how many trees they put in their project.  We used tempera paint, and our main goals were learning about value and shading to create form.  The students were able to add details to their snowmen, like scarves, hats, etc. if they chose to.  Adding a color to white paint to create form is a very big challenge, especially when the color is dark like blue.  The students did a great job, especially for their first try!
