Year 1

Sewing with Grade One 2017

 The children used various pastel patterns to create their fish and aliens and then dyed a wash   of colour over the whole image. They were taking a risk to use greater detail in their work to   make the art appear textured and more exciting for the audience.
 This is the second year of these children working on their library bags that they started in   Grade Prep. They have added the leaves to their trees focussing on using contrasting colours to   the trunk of the tree. Each year the students will add a little more and by the time they reach   Grade Six, will have a wonderful record of their Art time at Kingswood PS. 


 The Grade One students were looking at the colours, patterns and shapes of a Monarch   butterfly and noticed that all three elements are the same on both sides. They had to use their prior knowledge of line, pattern and colour to produce their very own symmetrical butterfly. 
 This kaleidoscope of butterflies now adorn the art room wall, taking colourful flight.

 We were experimenting with 'space' as an element of design trying to create depth in our art   creations. We overlapped images to give the impression of some things being in front and   some things being behind. We gave ourselves permission to only draw parts of some images   rather than the whole.
