Mrs. Stevenson is the BTSALP Visual Arts Specialist at Ascent Academies – Farmington. The morning we visited, she taught the first graders about mixing colors, primary, and secondary colors. She talked about Thanksgiving and read a story about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. Mrs. Stevenson also talked about how important corn or maize was. It was great seeing the first graders work and interact with Mrs. Stevenson and her teacher’s assistant, Mrs. Hart (she’s so helpful!)! It was also fun to see the different projects they had done with the students throughout the school!
Mrs. Stevenson showed the students how she dyed the corn kernels, while also discussing primary and secondary colors.
Mrs. Hart is Mrs. Stevenson’s teaching assistant. She helps to set up supplies, with classroom management, and assists students as needed. Thank you for your help, Mrs. Hart!
Here are some of the other projects that were posted around the school:
Students used warm and cool watercolors to paint the continents and oceans.
Students created owls after discussing animals and their environments.
Students illustrated different types of weather.
First graders talked about their communities and neighborhoods and recreated cityscapes.
think it’s so great and important that Mrs. Stevenson posts information about the art projects! It helps to show that integration is happening, creates a gallery in the hallway, and helps parents know what their kids are learning.
The main hallway features a wall for artwork created with the BTSALP specialist! Thanks for supporting the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program!
