1st grade painted cities

Inspirational cityscape by Romare Bearden
Cityscapes are a great way to introduce the basics in art - they are full of lines, shapes, colors, patterns, textures... you name it!  First graders drew cities from their memories and imaginations as well as from photos and examples from other artists.  We learned about watercolor painting techniques and just had a really fun time!  These are a perennial favorite and are always successful for all students.  Look for them on the 1st grade Spotlight Gallery (bulletin board) next time you are in the halls at Dolvin.
