CURRENT ART PROJECTS

First Grade Cupcakes
First grade is learning about cupcakes and alternating colors in a pattern. They also learned about shadows and how light changes the way a shadow falls on an object. It was also a challenge to alternate the frosting colors from pink to blue. But look at the results.
Second Grade Chameleon
