"Emphasis" on Christmas

Yes, these treasures have long since left the Art Studio, lovingly given as gifts to the artists' families. (At least that was the plan.  Parents, if you haven't seen these ask your artist! )  However, in the spirit of "better late than never", please enjoy these third grade Nativities.

Children learned the art principle of "emphasis" by directing our eyes to the focal point: Jesus' birth.  Other goals included painting with warm or cool colors using the "wet on wet" watercolor technique and cutting silhouettes with attention to interesting detail.
