Local artist Sara Ronnevik came in to teach a lesson to Adams second graders. We are proud to be Adams Otters so this was exciting for the students to create an art project displaying a place they love, and make watercolor discoveries!

She talked about the right and left sides of the brain and their distinct functions in art. The students looked at a photo of Adams and then started with drawing rectangles to make the sections of the building and windows (left brain). She then taught them how to mix paint, specifically maroon for the awnings, and then they painted. She made a stamp that they used for the wording on the awnings.

The students were excited to have a real artist in our classrooms teaching art. Sara has a beautiful way of communicating and pulling out the artist in every student.
