Students learned about Austrian Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. They used his harmonious landscapes as inspiration to create their own paintings. Mixed media used were: oil pastels, watercolors, and colored construction paper. Students were encouraged to use swirl lines, and bright colors to represent Hundertwasser eccentric personality. They nailed it 🎯 ❤️🎨
Students learned foreground, middle ground and background in this Multi-media project. They began with a guided drawing activity of their penguins. Students then collaged their beach backgrounds with colored construction paper and drew their beach details in their “sandscape”. Last students cut out and glued their penguins🐧 to the foreground.
Grade 4 students had so much fun creating these under the sea sand castles.
Grade 4 learned all about Africa from the textiles in their traditional Kente Cloth clothing to the infamous African Safari animals.
Students learned what each color represents in the Kente Cloth and selected the colors that best represent them. They learned how to weave and how to use patterns, shapes, and lines to design their Textiles.
Lastly they incorporated yarn into their weavings. We had so much fun learning about this beautiful continent.
After learning about ROYGBIV singing and dancing around the art room my tiny artist created these wonderful multimedia rainbows 🌈
I am literally obsessed with Takashi Murakami’s Art. I was blessed to have the opportunity to visit his Art exhibition in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 My students have also become slightly obsessed thanks to me. 🤫😬 Every time they see his artwork they can’t wait to come to me with pictures or to share their Murakami sightings 😍
Students trace their tiger using a sharpie so they will be able to see their black lines through the paint.
Students then paint the entire background of their canvas.
Once the paint dries students then paint their Tiger using black acrylic paint.
While waiting for paint to dry students brainstorm and sketch on black paper headphones, mustache, bows, ties, glasses, etc. to add to their final piece with glue.
The last step is using a Pollack technique splashing paint specks to the canvas as well as the dripping paint on the top.
(May,2014). A great way to show my students how to illustrate movement. I absolutely love Keith Haring’s Art work!
