Our students have created some amazing art works while investigating line over these past 2 weeks. This has been K2’s first regular visits to the artroom and they have jumped right in. Last week they created wonderful expressive monsters with line. This week they looked at Wassilly Kandinsky and are making concentric circles with glue, construction paper and scissors to play with color combinations.
We have been creating illusions with line in grade 2 and 4. Grade 4 created the illusion of a hand without actually drawing the hand while grade 2 used repeated pencil lines to create the illusion of forms that they transformed into Rapunzel’s hair, pumpkin stacks and even sunsets and reflections.
In grade 1 students connected lines to create shapes which became landscapes. The finished pictures using construction crayons are just beautiful.
Grades 5 and 6 made contour line drawings form life. Grade 5 drew their shoes and were then asked to send their lone shoe on a vacation somewhere in the world. Grade 6 was inspired by surrealism and Salvador Dali when they drew their hands and then transformed them in their drawings.
In addition grade 6 has been working with their years’ theme “all about me” to take some selfies and create personal emojis with the art room mini iPads.
