We are weavers, master weavers! Each student got 10-12 strips of water color paper which they then painted however they wanted. Once everyone was done they worked together (girls at one table, boys at the other) to plan out there weave patterns! After that they worked together to get them woven for the finished project!
This week 3rd/4th are working on abstract type art. Each were given an animal and free range to create their abstract piece!
We’ve been working on using our elements of art to create an original work of art. Each student was asked to pick at least two elements to use in their creation. We aren’t quite through yet but here are some progress pictures!
Last week, 3rd and 4th Grade finished up their bamboo paintings and got to jump into the art of the Middle Ages. I am SO excited about their next project! We will be doing last year’s illuminated manuscript project, where each student gets 5-6 letters from the alphabet and gets to decorate them in the style of the beautiful manuscripts from the times of kings and queens. Everyone was ready to get started, and even decided to work on their project during their reward day. They’ve been very focused, and love to compare and discuss their work as they go along. I know these are going to be great!
The 3rd and 4th Grade class just finished their Illusion projects. The project combines a review of basic tracing and coloring skills with the more advanced skill set of shading in a value scale. The illusions are up in the art room for everyone to come and admire.
For the first week of school, the third and fourth grade class used their first week of class to decorate their art folders. The students always enjoy personalizing their folders! Once those were done, we jumped right into our first project: a line illusion. We’re only in the first few stages of the drawings, but I am already excited to see the final creations.
4th Grade: Principle Presentations
Like Second and Third Grade, the Fourth Grade class was assigned a final presentation on the Principles of Art. Each student got one topic and was asked to create a poster to help teach the class about that topic. The posters are still in progress, but they’re looking good so far!
