Room 6 brainstormed fish in their sketchbooks and experimented with options by drawing in drafts. They carved images on styrofoam plates, then inked and printed on a variety of papers.
Grade 3 students used their sketchbooks to draw landscapes and brainstorm patterns. They practised using watercolor by making a puddle of clear water on the paper, loading up brushes with paint, and dropping the pigment into the water. They drew oil pastel patterns using a limited color scheme. Each child contributed one square of a collaborative waterfall scene.
For two weeks, I was the Artist-in-Residence at Calder Elementary School. The kids made such beautiful artwork! Here's what we did in English and Arabic kindergarten.
I was lucky enough to teach a workshop to some young artists on Saturday. Here are some photos of the work they did. Beautiful, isn't it? A big thank you to Emily Cargan and her volunteers, and to the talented kids at the Irish Cultural Centre. Go raibh maith agaibh!
