Continuing with the elements of art students have been using SHAPE and Color in their art works.
We’ve been looking at warm and cool colors in grade 5 and 6, secondary colors in grade 2 (of course) and primary and rainbow colors in K2. In grade 4 we learned to draw real trees, stylized trees in grade 6, birch trees in 5th, and we even used a straw and ink to “blow paint” trees in grade 3. Grade 1 used black paint to create the shapes that would become scaredy cats and designed new textiles while printing with sponges on paper.
Once we put the paints away we used cut paper to create Picasso witch collages in grade 4, amazing colorful skies with silhouettes in grade 3, Japanese Notan designs in 5th and in 6th grade learned about the work of installation artist Suzan Shutan and created their own paper clusters. Don’t let us forget that Halloween was looming over us so we created symmetrical portraits, haunted houses as well as a rogue’s gallery of interesting creatures.
We are starting our exploration of weaving over the next few weeks so check put our projects as I upload them to Artsonia.
Art club will be finishing up this week and it’s been a blast. We have been creating animal-like architecture like James Rizzi, using clay to make hand bowls and we even have designed moving robots who will do our drawing for us!
