This month’s artwork comes from the first grade students at Hammock Pointe Elementary School. Various elements and techniques of art combined with observation and discovery of life science to create this Art in Natural Sciences Project.
Students learned about the Spiral Line, which is the way the shell grows on the snail. They also learned about the snails’ pink/purple eggs, snail growth patterns, and snail locomotion.
Pastels (a dry, colored chalky drawing/painting medium) were used for the first time in this annual project. The students learned how to handle, smudge and use pastels properly. They learned to use the pastel as a line vehicle or a mass color vehicle.
