Kindergarten Shape Assessment

A directed drawing activity with the Kindergarteners to assess their knowledge about and their ability to render simple shapes. The assessment artwork from the beginning of the year will be saved in a portfolio. At the end of the year the portfolio will be reviewed to mark each students development and growth.

Back to School 2013-2014 - Malcolm Bell Art Room!

We have been very busy in the art room the last 4 weeks. Its amazing how quickly the time goes by. It seems even faster since I am scheduled with my art students only once a week for 45 minutes. Not nearly enough time as far as I'm concerned. But even in those short 45 minutes we are able to learn about and create some beautiful visual art.

The second graders have been working on warm/cool watercolor painting using Fall leaves as inspiration. Here are a few of the 2nd graders beginning their leaf paintings.
