In Library & Media, First graders read The Dot by Peter Reynolds, and discussed what it means to "Make Your Mark".
Then in Art, they analyzed a painting by Kandinsky, and learned how color can connect to our emotions.
They loaded paintbrushes up with color, and individually designed a dot to be part of a Kandinsky-inspired class painting. Stay tuned for their exploration in technology and the digital arts -- painting with iPods!
"I applied streaks and blobs of colors onto the canvas with a palette knife,
and I made them sing with all the intensity I could..." - Kandinsky
