2nd Grade Playing with Shapes



This month students at Memorial school are learning about  Shape as an Element of Art.  Artist in the second grade discovered many ways a square could be folded to make different shapes. They then folded 12 squares the same way. Once papers were folded, the children had an opportunity to "play around" with their new folded shapes to create a unique shape design. Once arrangement were made that the artist liked, they  glued their folded squares on paper. As a class we also discussed how repetition of a same shape can make an artist' work looking interesting.

September 2015

Exploring art through the ages is this year's Memorial Schools art theme. We will begin our journey  with prehistoric art and work our way through time ending up in The Modern Era. 



During the month of September, we have been digging in the past. Students from first through fifth grade have been learning about Pre-Historic art and discovering what some of the world's first artists created. Following a class discussion about the oldest works of art in existence ( that we have evidence of ) children then created their own "cave art masterpieces"
