WATERCOLOR RESIST LANDSCAPE
2ND GRADE | WEDNESDAYS FALL 2022
Fall into the Autumn season with this harvest-inspired New Mexico landscape painting program! Second grade students will explore perspective as they create watercolor resist paintings inspired by Ernest Martin Hennings’ End of the Harvest. Students will use a wax-resist method to create a drawn landscape in the foreground and then explore mark making techniques by swishing, dabbing, and dripping with paint brushes as the middle and backgrounds grow before their own eyes. This program is available only for second-grade classrooms in October and November 2022 and January 2023.
1ST GRADE | WEDNESDAYS SPRING 2023
Paper sculptures come to life with this 3D, collage technique! First grade students will cut, fold, bend, twist, and glue down colored paper onto a sturdy board, and the final result is a sculptural and exciting wall-hanging. Students will learn new words like “abstract” and learn about a non-representational work of art in the Stark Museum of Art collection by John Henry Twachtman. This program is available only for first-grade classrooms in February, March, April 2023.
