VISUAL ART AT CARROLL CREEK MONTESSORI PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL 2012-2017
Sunday, November 22, 2015
In open studio, upper elementary students are making great
progress on the world map mural.
In art class, lower and upper elementary students are learning and practicing a variety of watercolor painting techniques and washes as they continue to explore the European Impressionists and Expressionists. Ask them about wet on wet, wet on dry, and dry on dry watercolor painting techniques!
Lower elementary classes are creating glazing charts guided
by color relationships as their final painting project while upper elementary
classes are using the spiral as a guide to creating images of flowers.
The five year old primary students are focusing on the art
element of shape. They are learning about geometric and organic shapes and
practicing tracing and cutting out circles. They have enjoyed an introduction
to the sacred geometry of the spiral and are creating three dimensional,
painted, spirals as their final project.
