3rd Grade Mother's Day Paintings

May was flower month at East Elementary! The 3rd grade students learned about the life cycle of flowers as they learned to sketch different flowers and then paint them using acrylic paint on canvas art boards. The students mixed their own colors of paint to create highlights and shadows on their vase and flowers. This was really challenging for the students but we had a wonderful time. Each child presented his or her painting to their mother at a special program on May 13th.
