Romero Britto, A New Day, 2001, Acrylic on Canvas.
First grade has been working in the style of contemporary artist Romero Britto. We studied Britto’s use of line, shape, pattern, and color. First graders began by creating a symmetrical heart in the center of their paper. Using a ruler, students drew 6 diagonal and vertical lines making sure not to go through their heart. We learned that patterns REPEAT and got to work creating our own! What creative patterns our first graders came up with. Emphasis was created through the use of bright repeating colors.
The wonderful work of 1D
