Welcome to 2013 grade 4's! 

 It's so nice to see the snow this winter and to be inspired to create winter art!

What did you like about drawing the cardinal?  What was tricky about this art piece.  Leave a comment to tell us your thoughts.

Our unit on Canada this term included a lesson about the famous Group of Seven artists who loved to sit and admire the beauty of the Canadian landscape.  

Their art work often shows trees, water and mountains.  
We are so blessed to live in this country!

After looking at various examples of their art work, our class began sketching a natural scene then working with pastels to blend colours and create textured pieces.
