Primary Colors

"There are three primary colors..."  Check out this song by OK Go called "Three Primary Colors!"

Mrs. Ledesma's First Day of Art

I did Art all day today!  I remembered to take pictures  of some of our talented Puma Artists during 5th grade and 3rd grade

In 5th grade, kids were taking a pretest to see what they already knew about the elements of Art.  Here are a few pictures of their processes drawing shoes:

In 3rd grade, we practiced using warm colors and overlapping by drawing fall leaves.

We will sure miss Mrs. Bennett!  
This is going to be a FANTASTIC year!
