Lincoln: 3rd Grade Art PDF Print E-mail

Earlier this year, the 3rd grade students at Lincoln Elementary learned about the Chinese New Year holiday. Dragons are a sign of new life and a central part of the celebration. Each student drew their own dragon and painted it with bright colors against a night sky full of glittery fireworks. Students also learned about different types of architecture and drew one type of building. They learned about the difference between warm & cool colors and used the color schemes to brighten up the buildings in their art. Thank you Jenny Humphreys (Art Teacher) for always making our hallways at Lincoln Elementary so fun and interesting!

Lincoln: Printmaking & Mosaics PDF Print E-mail

Fifth graders at Lincoln Elementary learned about printmaking & mosaics in art. For printmaking, the students drew into a flat piece of styrofoam, then rolled ink over it to make a print. For mosaics, the students drew something on paper, then used small bits of magazine paper to fill in the colors. Both projects taught the students different techniques for making art. Jenny Humphreys is the art teacher at Lincoln Elementary.
