Elementary Artists Creating Winter Wonderland with Penguins and Aurora Borealis

By: Webmaster|Date: Jan 25, 2017|Tags: Arts, School News


PCA Elementary Art students are learning how to visualize an idea and connect art to life, literature & the word of God.   Students are using the vocabulary of art (the elements and principles of design) to express their own creative voice.

As students returned from Christmas break each class began their Winter Wonderland Unit of study.  The guiding Scripture for this unit is: Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord, “though your sins are as scarlet they will be white as snow! God washes and redeems us, always holding us in the palm of His hand, everyday His grace and mercies are new, like fresh snow.” Although we haven’t had much snow this winter students are still enjoying and engaging in the wintry theme.

The second grade classes have been working on a mixed-media penguin project, with a writing component. First we discussed that penguins are native to the Southern Hemisphere and how they would go about seeing the Aurora Borealis.  Students imagined their penguins traveled the world to see the Northern Lights. They wrote about their penguin’s experience, describing its favorite stop on the way to the North Pole.   Students also created a background for their flightless friend, worked on their horizontal stroke technique and blending colors across the sky. At the base students used watercolors and created an ice drift using cray-pas.
