Mrs. Kariya’s Grade 2 Artists & Ms. Hodgson’s Grade 2/3 Artists

After listening to Lois Ehlert’s book Leaf Man, the children went on a fall walk to collect different colours and shapes of leaves. They were encouraged to think about symmetry and the contrast of light and dark when arranging their leaves to make their own leaf picture.

Mrs. Kariya’s Grade 2

Jeremy Mayne worked with the Grade 2 and 3 students creating pieces of work that reflected their new understanding about liquids. Part of the project took them deep down into the depths of the ocean where there is very little natural light. These denizen of the dark were made using white chalk on black paper. We draw and smudge the chalk to show the light reflections. We also represented our understanding of buoyancy through pen and ink drawings to outline the boat in water and water color pencil to fill in the color.

Created by artists in Grade 5

Artist in residence, Jeremy Mayne, guided Grade 5 students through various mediums and techniques to create works of art representative of our varied Canadian landscape. Through the study of light and shadow, contour drawing, value and colour, three major landscape themes have been produced. In the style of the “Group of Seven” oil pastel on canvas art works, connect students to the historically rugged untamed nature of eastern Canada. Liquid Tempra on manilla tag paintings helped students visualize the landscape connection from the flat plains region to the imposing eastern edge of the Canadian Cordillera’s Rocky Mountains. Our own prehistoric Milk River area of southern Alberta is seen through pencil and coloured pencil renderings featuring Hoodoos and deep river valleys carved through millions of years of erosion.
