Playdough Art Based Station

To give the students more opportunity to make sculptures, we have a Playdough Station. In this Art Based Station, students can make any sculpture they want. Below are some examples of students who practiced making masks with the dough.


Radial Patterns Station

Kinder through Second Grade students practice creating radial patterns using wooden pattern blocks. Below are some examples of their work:



Read, Write, and Sketch The Art Room

Before teaching Visual Arts, I taught First Grade. With that background, I believe that "Word Walls" are a good reference for students when learning new content related vocabulary words. In one of our Art Based Learning Stations, students "Read, Write, and Sketch" the art room including the Visual Arts Word Wall (located on our cabinets due to lack of wall space). The word wall cards that I use came for Teachers Pay Teachers and can be located here and here. In this station, students may use clipboards or the counter to choose four words to read about. They then take notes on the definition provided on the word wall. They then sketch an example of that word.



Kindergarten Calder Inspired Creations

After studying about artist Alexander Calder, Kindergarten students cut out shapes in primary colors and arranged them intuitively on their work. They then created various lines in the background using a ruler. Their works were on display for Open House and Big Art Day.


Kinder-Third Crazy Line Sculptures

During a study of artist Alexander Calder, Kinder through Third Grade students created crazy line sculptures out of air-dry clay and pipe cleaners. The students displayed these on their homeroom desks for Open House which also happened to be Big Art Day.




Kindergarten MLK Projects

During our study of Martin Luther King, Jr. the Kindergarten students created overlapping handprints with various skin tones.

Students who finished work early worked at the collaborative table to create large snowman collages using construction paper and sheet music to songs such as "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?", "Winter Wonderland", and more.

The students worked in small groups to create Miro inspired designs and then pieced them together to create a large display:
