1st Grade: Spring Has Sprung!
For this in-depth unit I introduced the concept of a flower filled with art vocabulary such as; design, line design, concentric circles, shapes, detail etc. Students at this point in the year must use art vocabulary to describe their work. Using their primary colors they painted their designed flowers then used toothpicks to create neon colored dots to highlight certain areas. The background of the flower and stem is a compilation of organic and geometric shapes that have been cropped and colored in using solid coloring and rubbing techniques. The final step was to create a patterned flower pot and fold it to build a 3D "Pop Up" pot.
