Shiny Apples

1st and 2nd grade continued looking at nutritious foods by studying apples. Apples are also an excellent subject to demonstrate how light effects the color of an object. Students were provided with a square piece of paper, red, green, yellow and white tempera paint and an apple! They were asked to look at their apple and notice how one side of the apple seemed brighter as a result of light hitting its surface. They were encouraged to draw their apple large and pay attention to blending white into the main color when painting the side of the apple they wanted to highlight. They look good enough to eat 🙂

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
