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 🌈
This is one of my favorite lessons.
Students started with an eye study on how to draw realistic animal eyes. They used oil pastels for coloring. Students then began to paint on newspaper. Once dried students ripped and shredded the newspaper 📰 and glued onto their blank canvas.
Students then placed the eyes and nose over the newspaper and painted more in-depth details to create their cats and dogs. Multi step lesson with amazing results ❤️🎨😻🐶🤩
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.
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 😍🤓😷😜
Grade 2 Learning about warm and cool colors.
My students learned about warm and cool colors by looking at the art work of Kandinsky. I first had them divide their paper into six squares. I had them paint warm colors first, then we painted our squares in cool colors. I then went over patterns with them and had them make a warm, cool, pattern with their circles. We used colored construction paper for the circles. You might want to remind your students to start with the largest circle and make sure they look at the color of their square to create the pattern. So if their square is yellow, which is warm, their 1st circle should be a cool color, and so on. It gets a little technical however this core relates to math, students should know how to create AB patterns. Remember be Art Smart and have fun. Enjoy😀🎨
