This week in second grade we are reading The Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco. In this story a quilt is handed down through generations. We are making drawing of someone handing something down to us. The images in this book are very interesting because they are almost completely black and white drawings. Only what is handed down is in color. Polacco uses this technique to draw the viewer’s eye to what she sees as important.
We are using the same technique in our paintings. Stay tuned for some amazing student work.
