1st Grade Hot Air Balloons


Hot Air Balloons

The 1st graders reviewed the Art Elements of Shape, Line and Color while creating hot air balloons.  They first drew many different types of lines through their hot air balloon then filled between the lines with geometric shapes.  They also had to remember to create patterns with their lines and shapes.  When they were done drawing they used the 3 primary colors, red, yellow and blue to paint a few parts of their balloon.  Then by mixing the 3 primary colors they explored the secondary colors and created orange, violet and green to paint the rest of their balloon. When done they outlined with black and created a hot air balloon basket to carry themselves away!!
Up, up and away!!!
