We learn many things through art. The focus of the DES Art Show this year was texture. Texture is the way something feels. The third and fourth graders focused on “actual texture”. The third grade students created “finger knittings” to place in a tree represented from a book read in class titled, The Mitten Tree, which was about being kind to others. Third grade skills learned during this process were hand eye coordination, patience, pattern work, and knot tying. Fourth graders learned the value of “delicate texture” by using tissue paper to make tissue paper flowers. The skills learned during this process were hand eye coordination, gluing techniques, folding, and scissor control. Fifth grade learned about “implied texture” by designing their own street art and incorporating graffiti. The skills learned during this process were watercolor painting, gluing, scissor control, the use of color, and different ways to create texture in their artworks. Ms. Lemser is very proud of DES students’ art abilities.
