After learning about the artist Alberto Giacometti, 3rd graders “struck a pose” for their friends to sketch them in the style of Giacometti ( extremely tall, impossibly thin, unproportioned). They are currently working on sculpting a “metal” (tin foil) Giacometti figure!
Here is a friend posing in a split just like her Giacometti figure!! 🙂
1st-5th graders took a break from their current projects today to have a fun day with paint! We discussed the art of Jackson Pollock, who was an American painter and played a large part in the abstract expressionist movement. They looked at Pollock’s art and had the opportunity to create their own Pollock “splatter art”. As you can tell, we had a ton of fun getting messy with the paint!
2nd graders have been exploring architecture lately. Today they explored the Pantheon and the Colosseum via 3d model! They also discussed the designs of various columns found in Roman architecture.
Third graders are diving into their illuminated alphabet project this week. They each chose letters from the alphabet that they will be working on. Here, they are working on the first step, transferring their letter image onto their drawing paper! I am excited to see what they create with these!!!
