An Artists’ Expression

367 0

Students in Grade 1/2 are wrapping up their first unit of inquiry on Artists’ Expression. Throughout this unit, students learned about a different artist each week. We learned about Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Keith Haring, Yahoo Kusama, Alexander Calder, and Hannah Hoch. We explored different mediums, tools, and types of artwork. Each time we learned about a new artist, we focused on expressing ourselves, or communicating a message. As our summative assessment, we wrote an autobiography about ourselves as artists.
​We got our hands messy, enjoyed the process, and had a lot of fun!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
