Grant Wood found his own backyard- the farm fields of Iowa- to be a great source for inspiration in art making. Kindergarten through second grade students are exploring American landscape paintings by Grant wood while learning about texture and pattern. Close looking, group discussion, and reading prepare students to work collaboratively and independently to paint and collage a unique landscape. You will find some seasonal details- pumpkins, ghosts, and more with Halloween right around the corner.
Hello from the studio at Jacob G. Smith Elementary School! My name is Jillian Luse and I work with emerging artists in kindergarten through fifth grade. This is our online gallery, a space to share what we learn and create.
