Students will create cool and warm landscapes using oil pastels. They will either represent the scene at noon or at sunset, which flip the location of the colors.
The Kindergarteners explored the world of texture that surrounds them and covers them everyday. Texture is an important part or art making as well. Using our crayons and some special bumpy texture plates we made rubbings that could mimic the bumpy skin of crocodiles. Then with a splash of watercolor over top the wax of the crayon we filled in the skin with a beautiful rainbow!
Is this paper flat? You might question if these lines are popping of the page but it’s just an illusion, a trick of the eye. They looked at the art of Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. These two were very awesome artists from the Op-Art Movement, a time in art history where many artists made pictures that tricked your eyes. Now look close at these pictures to see how Line and Value (also known as Shading) are used to make everything look round!
When someone asks you to make art often you will think of things you could draw or paint. Maybe you think you will draw your dog, or your family, or people swimming at the ocean. But what if your goal was to have no object in your art? That would be non-objective! Non-objective art usually is about color, line, and shape as well as making something that looks good to the eye. The 3rd grade took on this task and had great results. They even scrambled up and collage their cut up paintings to ensure that no objects could be found!
