Welcome to Art Class with the Amazing Art Teacher

Here is one of my many animated introductory lessons. Students love my Bitmoji. My videos are great to increase student engagement, motivation and enhance learning.

Landscapes

Here is an animated Video I created with my Bitmoji to help my students learn about landscapes with a cool song to help them remember where and how to place objects in the Foreground, Middle ground, and Background. I also teach them a cool dance along with learning the song 🎡 πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸŽ¨β€οΈ

Pop Art -Andy Warhol Prints

My Grade 4’s created Andy Warhol inspired prints of themselves using transparency paper and neon acrylic paints. I took their selfies and printed them out. They then made a stencil of their portraits and used contrasting colors to paint the positive and negative space of their images. My Grade 3’s helped by painting the Jackson Pollock inspired background. We then incorporated the PYP Learner profile for our lobby display. ❀️🎨
