Oh Texture, Oh Boy!

Our first graders just completed these artworks, where they not only learned about texture (the way things feel!), but also learned some basic color theory.  First, they used items found in their art boxes to create seven or eight different textures with Model Magic. 

 To complete these awesome paintings, the students chose to use either the warm or the cool colored family, and then tried to mix as many different hues with them as they could.  They finished with skinny brushes and paint from the metallic family. 


The students came up with some really interesting details with their metallic paint.  Luke even decided to include one of our BFF's (Basic Fact Friend: As a building, we are focusing on two math facts per week!) in his painting!
