We just love to paint!!
Second graders looked at the work of one of my favorite artists, Jasper Johns (I even had a cat named Jasper Johns Jamieson). We looked at his numbers paintings and learned about how to paint with hot wax. Students then drew out their ABC's using oil pastels. Next, we learned how to mix our watercolors, using the pallete on the inside of the lid to make really interesting and beautiful colors. Each letter was then painted a different color. The results......wonderful! I will have them posted on Artsonia next week.
