Kindergarten students learned about primary and secondary colors while making the cutest birds ever! Some birds had long feet while other birds had short feet, they are adorable!
They mixed the primary colors;
Red, Yellow and Blue
to make secondary colors;
Green, Purple and Orange.
Do you know what color you make when all three primary colors are mixed at the same time?
Red + Yellow+ Blue= BROWN
Third grade learned about Tu B’Shevat in Jewish Studies and created trees in art class.
They made the snowy background using tints and shades of blue.
Add white to a color to make a tint and add black to a color to make a shade.
They created a silhouette of a Y-tree, fence and rabbit using markers.
Trees inspired by Orchard Drive elementary school and Artsonia
First grade students talked about the Wizard of Oz. This was one of the first movies to use color. They were surprised that some movies were only in black and white.
We discussed perspective while watching the poppy scene. They noticed that the poppies at the bottom were bigger than the flowers on top. PERSPECTIVE!
They made poppies using tempera paint and oil pastels. Notice how flowers at the bottom look closer!
Thank you Suzanne Tiedemann for a great lesson!
Fifth grade students used face mapping to create a 3/4 view self-portrait. They came out fantastic!!!! I am so impressed with them!
They used two tones of skin color to create shading in their face, neck and ears. Their hair also has a variety of tones.
Thank you Fuglefun for putting together a great art lesson
Fourth graders learned about Sea Turtles and why they are endangered. Take a look at the video with Jeff Corwin to learn more http://www.defenders.org/sea-turtles/get-more-information
They brainstormed ways to inform people that the sea turtles need our help. They decided that they could blog about sea turtles and turn their art into posters!
Look at the fourth grade blogs and learn about sea turtles at http://mjgds.org/classrooms/4thgrade/

Second Grade looked at Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night on Google Art Project.
