To create their art work students used overlapping shapes to map out the overall shape of their bear. They then used a dabbing technique to apply the paint and used printing techniques and oil pastels for the snowflakes. Students used cut painted paper to collage and “dress-up” their Polar bears a little- outfitting them with hats, scarves and sometimes mittens!
Farmingville’s 2nd Grade artists were inspired by the winter weather and created these fantastic Polar Bear paintings. Before they began they first learned some fascinating facts about these Arctic giants and what makes them so spectacular.
