Kindergarten - The kindergarten teachers and I are working to teach the students the following shapes: circle, square, rhombus, rectangle, triangle and trapezoid. In the art room we are creating lesson that focus on circle, square and triangle this month.
1st grade- The 1st grade students are learning about texture. Artist draw implied texture and we feel real texture with our hands. Students have made texture weaving necklaces and will begin a texture hamburger soon.
2nd grade- The 2nd grade students are learning about color theory (color mixing and the color wheel). Students have created a tropical bird using all colors and are working on a color wheel spider web.
3rd grade- The 3rd grade students have learned about two landscape artist Lawren Harris and Ted Harrison. Both artist are Canadian and painted pictures of the the Canadian wilderness/mountains.
4th grade- The 4th grade students are learning about real and implied texture. Texture is an element of art. Implied texture is what artist draw (like when drawing hair or a bumpy rock). Students have created an implied texture art by leaf rubbing and then drew themselves jumping into their leaf rubbing.
5th grade- The 5th grade students are learning about the elements of art. They are using their design skills of drawing space to create a design embossed into aluminum. They are very excited about their projects.
This month I have many may do choice for students to work on when their assignment is complete. Look for paper pate pumpkins and doddle sketches.
