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.

Andy Warhol “Campbell’s Soup” Pop Art

Grade 4 students learned about Andy Warhol and his contributions to the Pop Art movement. Students learned why Warhol was inspired by Campbell’s soup and used it for his print making technique.

Students learned about form and how to draw using this element. Students began by designing their Campbell’s soup can. Some invented their own flavors and ingredients. They then created a 3 dimensional can using foil and label. Students were encouraged to focus on their design, letter placement and image to grab the attention of the consumer. Lastly students created ingredient labels and placed them on the back of their cans.

This project included both elements of art and principles of design.

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 🎵 💃🏽🎨❤️

Viva la Frida 🌺🌼🌸💓🙌🏽

This is one of my favorites! My Grade 4 students learned all about Frida Kahlo and her brilliant self portraits. This was a multi-media lesson beginning with a guided demonstration on how to draw Frida. Students used oil pastels and watercolors to design their portraits and background. Lastly students created tissue paper flowers for her crown.

My Grade 1 students had fun choosing funny animals to represent Frida. They used sponge paint to design a textured frame. Students created tissue paper flowers to add actual texture and black felt for Frida’s infamous unibrow.

I must say I’m obsessed with the outcome and the amazing artwork of my little artists.🎨💓

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. ❤️🎨

Astronauts in Space

Grade 4 learned how to draw an astronaut through a guided drawing tutorial from Art for Kids Hub YouTube channel. Students then developed skills in drawing and blending using chalk and oil pastels as they created an outer space background on construction paper. Once students finished their backgrounds we mounted their astronaut using card stock and mounting tape to give it a 3D effect. 🚀👩🏼‍🚀☄️💫

Emojis

Grade 2 Students learn about emotions and how color can be used to express different emotions. In today’s world Emojis are used to communicate rather than words. Students really grasped the concept and drew different emojis and colors to express how they were feeling 😍🤓😷😜

SnapChat Filter Selfies

Students loved creating self portraits using snap chat filters. Move over Instagram we all know Snapchat has the best fun filters.

To make our selfies even more real we mounted them on a cell phone drawing.

This lesson is inspired by Cassie Stephens she has a tutorial on her blog as well as her YouTube channel. https://cassiestephens.blogspot.com

I allowed my students to chose their filter and animal. I love the finished product🤳🏾❣️🎨😍📸📲
