Guest Post by Emma Smith, 4th grade artist from Wilder Elementary
“This is a puffin I painted. You might ask “why did she decide to paint a puffin?” Well, I thought not many people make art of puffins or penguins. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between a penguin and a puffin. A puffin has a big orange beak and the body is shaped differently. My puffin is from the artic and she does not have a family.
I liked making this art piece because I did it on my own and I used different techniques with the watercolor like salt and rubbing alcohol.
This is one of my most favorites! I hope you like my painting.”
This is a guest post by a fifth grade student here at WIlder, Grace Benedict. Here is what she has to say about her artwork:
“My artwork is about the beautiful sunset glowing over the hills. There is a long swirly trail and tall trees in my piece. I like making this art work because it was a fun experience. Before, I thought my picture would be pretty simple but now I think that artwork can be original and spontaneous.”
As a fifth grader, I am a leader, a gymnast, and best of all – an artist!”
Makena Guthrie is a fifth grade student at Wilder. Here is what she wrote about her artwork:
“This metal wire piece is about a plant and it’s leaves and petals. In my artwork my plant is growing and blooming; the first swirl is a sign of spring. Growth is happening all around and each plant is different.
I loved making my piece because when I stepped back to look at it, it looked alive (even though I had band aids on my fingers from poking them with wire!)
As as artist, I am me and my artwork always has me in it. I am creative and love everything I do!”
