Students learned about American Artist Claes Oldenburg. They created Hamburger 🍔 collages inspired by Oldenburg. Students used a variety of materials to create their toppings, they were encouraged to think out the box and recreate their favorite foods as hamburger toppings some included ice cream 🍦, chicken 🍗, egg 🍳, pizza 🍕, sushi 🍣, and more.
Students then glued their creations on a paper plate and made a red and white paper weaving tablecloth as the final touch.
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😀🎨
This was a fun lesson that my Kindergartners enjoyed. They started out tracing their hand on brown paper. Then cutting it out and gluing it on to the yellow construction paper. We then went over small, medium, and large for the circles. Getting them to differentiate the sizes was challenging however you can modify your lesson by having them either draw small, medium, and large circles on different color paper, or you can have them start out drawing the small circle cutting it out and gluing it onto a different color construction paper. Then have them draw a “Bigger” circle around it, cutting it out and gluing it on to a different color paper. Then draw a “Bigger” circle around that one. They will end up with a three circle pattern that they can now glue onto their branch. Remember be Art Smart and have fun.
