First graders make portraits and still lifes

First graders have been having fun using lines, shapes and overlapping in our latest creations - family portraits and apple still lifes. I especially love the combination of the soft watercolor wash backgrounds and the colored, cut apple shapes together - these compositions were inspired by a post at MaryMaking, as well as the art of Matisse and Cezanne. Enjoy!
