EXPLORATION

Last week we finished the pumpkin project with tempera paint and learned about mixing colors and over-layering with tempera paint! This week we will design a room or window with colorful construction paper and draw a monster peeking out from it.

 


FOUNDATION

Last week we finished painting the top (and some the bottom) parts of the scarecrow with watercolor and markers. This week we will finish the entirety of the scarecrow with watercolor and start on the preliminary sketch for the oil painting project coming up.

      

 


ADVANCEMENT

Last week we finished the Magritte project with watercolor and pastels. This week we will start on the sketch for the oil painting project: Van Gogh’s Shoes!
