Good afternoon, everyone!
We are getting into that busy time of year in which the pumpkin spice monster is waiting to jump out at every turn and the holidays are right behind him.
The art room is always a busy place and we are transitioning into some new projects across multiple grade levels.
7-8th Grade. We are continuing to use value, this time with color. We learned about Op artists Victor Vasarely and Bridget Riley with MC Escher tossed in for fun. We are creating our own optical illusions using colored gradients and markers.
6th Grade: We are finishing up our Van Gogh inspired sun-flowers using warm and cool color selections. These are looking absoloutely lovely and I can't wait till they get to show off the final product. We are self-grading our projects this week before we dive into learning about facial proportions.
5th Grade: Finishing up our zen tangle color wheels and creating the background for our next project which involves learning about lines and using our intuition to create art.
4th Grade: Sharing our cartoons and stories this week before we move into our new project about Paul Klee next week.
3rd Grade: We are learning about silouhettes and using our warm and cool colors to create beautiful backgrounds for the trees we are creating using cardboard.
2nd Grade: We are using different shapes to create flower stamps for our backgrounds on our Andy Warhol project
1st Grade: We are also learning about how Andy Warhol made multiple picture in different colors. We are practicing our cutting skills and using our hands to make prints, just like Andy Warhol. We are also using our primary colors to make the next print in our series.
Kinder: This past week, we designed our own crayons, each one of which could do something special and unique, just like we can. This week, we are taking on a longer project involving crayons and water colors.
