Second Grade Families!

Second grade students have been hard at work on their family portraits. We discussed overlapping and how to show that one person was in front of another to create depth in their artwork. They are turning out great! Last week our question of the day was "Why are families important"? The kids gave lots of great answers to this essential question and I encouraged them to do something to "return the favor" for all the things their family does for them. That was their art homework for the week and I look forward to hearing about the kind things they did to express their thanks. The students are using watercolors to paint their portraits. Hopefully they will be able to complete these in the next several weeks. Here are some snapshots of their works in progress.
