Third-grade students learned about one-point and atmospheric perspective to create this work. Using their knowledge of spatial relationships students drew trees leading up to an original house. Finally, students used a green screen application to add themselves to their scene.
Look at the examples of one-point and atmospheric perspective in photographs, artwork and movie stills we talked about in class.
Kindergarteners learned how to draw a realistic pumpkin and leaves. Students learn the difference between the primary and secondary colors then mixed the primary colors to paint their pumpkin, leaves, and stem. Finally, students cut and collaged each element of their scene on to a night sky they created using chalk.
Watch the primary and secondary color video they watched in class here:
2nd-grade students learned about Georgia O'Keeffe and her large-scale flower paintings. We also discussed Veteran's day and how the US developed the tradition of the wearing of poppies to honor America's veterans. Students drew and painted their own poppies and attached them to a background they created using chalk pastel. These paintings will be displayed for our guest veterans during Monroe's Veterans Day assembly on November 11th.
See some of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings below.
Third grade students started by looking at famous examples of non-objective abstract art.
Then class created abstract sketches while listening to three rock songs. The students were to represent the music through line, shape, color and design. They picked their favorite drawing and used it to create a painting by mixing oil pastels and watercolors. Finally, the 3-5 students collaged their hands on top using the Green Screen iPad app. The final pieces will be hung up during Rock N Roll cosmic bowling in February!
Listen to the songs we listened to here:
First graders learned how artists depict weather in artwork, specifically the artist William Turner. Students designed an umbrella and jacket using their knowledge of line, shape, and pattern. Then they created the background using blue marker and spray bottles and collaged their other pieces on top.
See the artwork of William Turner below:
In 1st grade, we looked at the art of famous portrait photographers who depict extreme emotion. Students explained different emotions and situations in which they feel each emotion. Finally, the children chose four emotions to depict in their photo strip. Here is the inspiration for this project:
2nd-grade students learned about still lives and sequence photography. Using pictures and real apples, students created a realistic apple eating sequence. They mixed colors of oil pastels for the apples and painted the background using watercolor.
Check out the still lives and photos the students used as inspiration for this project:
