Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! It has been kind of a crazy start, so this is my first post of the school year. I have had a change in my schedule and am finally settled. Most of my classes (except my new school-Shakerag) are into their first projects of the year and I am so excited to see how everything turns out!
Kindergarten-We are "Talking Lines" in unit 1. This project involves some technology, and I am so excited to see how they turn out.
First Grade-It's all about color! We are looking at different color schemes and using them to paint a non-objective design for the background of their collages.
Second Grade-We are looking at Aboriginal Art. Their artwork will have a personal symbol and lots of colors and patterns. Be on the look out!
Third Grade-We are doing a color study inspired by Kandinsky.
Fourth Grade-Contour Drawing and Zentangles. I am in love with this project! If you don't know what a zentangle is, then come back in about 5 weeks and you can see what they are and how they can be used in art.
Fifth Grade-We are talking about the Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. They are creating self-portraits using his comic book style. They are so pumped about this project and very engaged. I can't wait to see the results!
Come back and visit in a few weeks and I will have some pictures posted of the projects! See you then!
