In our current unit for art class, we will be closing out the year learning how to sew. We have learned so many art skills throughout the school year. The students have made sculptures with clay, learned how to mix and use watercolors, and how to look at the proper details on their faces in order to be able to draw and color self-portraits. They were able to learn different styles of drawing, how to work with wire to make artwork using that material, and they were even able to work on some acting, script reading, and hollow block building during our art class. With all that said, they have really grown in their abilities as artists this year.
As we move into this new unit, sewing is our focal point. They are learning different stitching techniques in order to eventually build a pillow, stuffed animal with buttons for eyes, a sports team logo, or a ball – wherever their imaginations take them. In the pictures that are shown above, they are all working on putting patches together using different sewing techniques that will be helpful to them when they begin their final projects. They have really been challenged in this unit but have worked hard to keep moving forward, having a good time in the process. Great work 2nd grade!!!
