Beautiful Art All Around

For several weeks, students have learned about several abstract artist and their techniques. The main goal of the lesson: to help students understand that there is art all around us and it does not always come in the shape of a rectangular picture, with perfect lines and colors.

"Art" means something different to everyone, Miss Barber reminded her 3rd grade students, who were asked to create an abstract fall picture using straws, sponges, paper towels, and paint brushes. Students use a blowing technique to create the tree and used many different techniques to paint their leaves and sky.

"My students have come to understand that there is beautiful art all around them if they look for it," she said.
