Linked to Pinterest!

After a few hours of trying to figure out how to link my Pinterest account to my Google Blog...yippee I figured it out. It's the small things in life that make me happy these days. :-)

1st Grader Geometric Shape Scarecrows

First Graders in the Bell Art room have been very busy this Fall working on shape recognition in drawing and painting. We are quickly moving away from use of "tracers" and are beginning to free hand geometric and organic shapes from imagination and from observation. "You can draw anything if you can recognize the shapes in the object." The 1st graders have been working on a series of drawing and paintings based upon simple geometric shapes. Through this directed drawing the kids developed scarecrows with the use of circles, squares, ovals, rectangles and trapezoids.
