Hot and Cold hands

Second grade artists looked at the difference between warm and cool colors. Warm colors are found in things like fire, the sun, and lava. Cool colors are found in things like ice, water and snow. Our backgrounds have one shape that echoes or repeats, creating a  pattern. It is painted with cool colors. Our foregrounds (the hands) our painted with warm colors.

4th grade artists learned about the seven Elements of Art. They are LINE, SHAPE, FORM, COLOR, VALUE, SPACE and TEXTURE. Our artwork features all seven of these elements.
