3rd Grade: Tints and Shades

24 Mar

In Mrs. Johnson’s Art Room, 3rd Graders are learning all about tints and shades in preparation for a painting project.

We learned that a tint is created when you add white to a color to make it lighter.

We learned that a shade is created when you add black to a color to make it darker.

Check back soon to see what we’ve created using tints and shades!



2nd Grade: Snowman Families!

2 Mar

Or should I say “snowpeople” families?? In Mr. Langevin and Mrs. Johnson’s Art Rooms, 2nd Graders have been drawing portraits of their own families… as if they were snowpeople! We even have a few snowPETS featured, too 🙂

We also took a look at the book, “Snowmen At Night” by Caralyn and Mark Buehner for inspiration in creating our scenes!

After drawing our families, we practiced turning the circular bodies of our snowpeople into spheres using paint.

Check out our wonderful snowpeople families below! (And don’t forget to click on any image to make it larger!)
