Grade 1 Gets St ART ed!
1st Grade Artists have learned how to identify art materials that are safe for children to use. They used good detective skills as they looked for either an "AP" or "CP non-toxic" small circle on a variety of art materials. Please be sure the supplies your child has at home are safe...Crayola brand is always a safe bet.
For our first project the children are making 2-D hot air balloons, using the Dr. Seuss story Oh,The Places You'll Go! as inspiration. This project will incorporate a variety of techniques as well as mediums, including paint. Helper charts, on which the children are assigned rotating jobs, help keep painting days somewhat orderly.
