My Project

Help our class tap into their creativity with new and different art media to use. Students will learn about the seven elements of art as they explore how oil pastels, chalk pastels, and paint sticks can be used to create both realistic and abstract art.

Students will learn ways to use the different media as they explore the elements of art: line, shape, form, space, value, texture, and color.

We will have fun exploring projects beyond the simple crayons and markers that we rely so heavily on. Students will have an opportunity to learn art skills as they also learn how to use these new art materials.

We truly appreciate any support you can give to help our budding artists thrive and grow!

Ms. Summers
Grades 3-5
