Perfect lesson for the holiday teaching students all about the element of art “Value” and how to blend and shade using chalk and oil pastels.
Students learned about Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. Students learned about abstract art and how to express feelings through color, shapes and lines while listening to music for inspiration.
Students created a Kandinsky inspired painting using all elements of art in one composition.
Last students used yarn adding actual texture and emphasis to lines.
My Grade 3’s learning about the element of art “Value”. After discussing the brush fires in Australia they did a guided drawing activity of a Koala. They developed skills in shading and blending using charcoal, oil pastels, and acrylic paints. Watercolors were used to paint the background. Leaves were drawn by observation, value was added using oil pastels then pasted as the last step. 😍🐨❤️🇦🇺
