Alexander Calder

Since we don't have Art or Music in our district any more AND since I like to offer the full day class a little something extra I teach ARTISTS OF THE MONTH.  Each month we explore a composer and an artist.  This month we are enjoying Beethoven and Calder. It is easy and fun to integrate into the curriculum.  This week's Sight Words were red, yellow and blue. When looking over some of Calder's abstract paintings the students found that the primary colors were Calder's primary choice. Not only did we get to paint at stations but I had parent volunteers supervising:)
