Lincoln: Art PDF Print E-mail

The art classes at Lincoln Elementary create memorable & amazing experiences for our students. Fourth graders have had the opportunity to play, draw and write, all forms of communication. The students started by painting a non-representational watercolor painting. Students were excited to let the paint bleed, run and splatter. After the paintings were dry, the students drew on their paintings, looking for images to emerge; many found this difficult, but after finding one thing, more images became obvious. Lastly, the students wrote a poem about their painting, focusing on adjectives to describe their painting. Some students were able to organize their thoughts into a theme or a sentence structure. The fourth graders were definitely tapping into their own creativity for this project. Jenny Humphreys is the art teacher at Lincoln Elementary.
