Fourth-graders discovered the art of Lea Anderson and her organic forms. Combining a variety of patterns, lines and color, students created their own versions of abstract organic, flowing shapes. Next, students were challenged to take their shapes from 2-D to a 3-D sculptural piece, transforming the shape into a rhythmic flow. Students used permanent markers and watercolor paint to enhance these very creative sculptures. Artwork created by Mrs. Blocker, Mrs. Gonzales, Mrs. Martinez, and Mrs. Rodriguez’s 4th graders in Ms. Perez’s Art Class
