Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Our THIRD Class together on Thursday, October 11th was yet another session filled with excitement, energy, and education! Together, we discussed the importance of safety (especially during Trick or Treat season), horizontal & vertical lines, and things we enjoy about autumn, Halloween, and holidays. To test their "follow instructions" skills, we created step-by-step drawings of an owl (to take home and color), and finished the day with our own "Scarecrow Popsicle Stick Man" and funny googly eyes. Each piece is so uniquely original, engaging, and holiday-festive. The students also critiqued famous masterpieces, "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and "American Gothic" by Grant Wood. Great class, y'all! THANK YOU! :)
Our THIRD class together on Thursday, October 11th, the 4th-8th grade students embarked on a challenging art assignment. They studied SHAPE (the third element of our Seven Basic Elements of Art) via a project called "Symmetrically-SHAPED Selfies." After a mirror-study and a few studies about symmetry, the objective of the lesson was to illustrate on canvas the other half of their self-portraits (the left half contained their pre-mounted self-photo from which to reference). This was not only an exciting adventure, but the students proved to be masters in detail observation, rendering shape structure, following design instructions, and willingly participating in activities that were new to some of them. I am utterly thankful for sharing this artist adventure with such an outstanding bunch of students!!!
