Beautiful Blooms in 1st and 2nd Grade

I was inspired by an art project I saw to create these cool flower paintings that worked perfectly with our Art Garden/Creativity in Bloom theme. Students used 3-4 paint colors for their flower starting with the circle in the middle, then concentric circle-ish shapes around it. When they were dry, students used black paint to add petal details and outline. Love how bold they are!

5th Grade Nature-Inspired Paper Art

5th graders made some beautiful nature-inspired sculptural paper masterpieces! Planting seeds of creativity and watching our art gardens grow this year! The goal of this project was to show movement with their piece, but also to evoke a sense of nature. The paper pieces are mainly just hearts cut out and left folded in half to create dimension, but they give the feeling of leaves, butterflies, moths, flowers, water, wind etc.
