Giraffes CAN Dance!!

By: Kaidyn C.
Second grade artists studied the continent of Africa and animals that are indigenous to that area of the world. The students examined the warm colors of yellow, orange, and red, and the ability that these colors have to relay temperature and atmospheric conditions. Students continued exploring the different parts of a painting including background and foreground, as well as using overlapping to show distance and space in an artwork. The student used art elements (color, line, space, value, texture) and principles of design (movement, variety) to express a giraffe’s emotions and produce a variety of movements displayed by their giraffe. We used details to describe visual effects and illustrate an accurate African landscape with oil pastels.
