"Native American Headbands!"
During our FOURTH class together, in celebration of Thanksgiving, the Kindergarten through 3rd Grade Students ventured into making Native American Headbands! We first studied line patterns, line designs, and line art. Then we learned about my new favorite artist, Mr. Wayne Thiebaud, while viewing and critiquing two of his famous dessert paintings ("Lemon Meringue Pie"  and "Cakes" ). Then, students created unique line patterns on their headbands and added their chosen feather. It was FABULOUS! Thanks, class! Enjoy the various, uniquely creative line designs below. :)
During our FOURTH class together on Thursday, November 8th, we decided to take a breather from the intense study of learning all about the "Seven Basic Elements of Art." Instead, we focused on DESSERT! With Thanksgiving Holidays just around the corner, and in honor of my newest favorite artist, Wayne Thiebaud (and all his wonderfully, scrumptiously rendered dessert paintings and artwork), we touched on elements of perspective drawing while exploring soft/chalk pastels on charcoal paper. What a BLAST! Thank you for the inspiration, Mr. Thiebaud, and thank you students for helping us enjoy yet another terrific artistic learning experience! Bon appétit!
