Learning goals for quarter 1: I can use art materials properly & safely, I can create an artwork using many kinds of lines. I can explore using different kinds of texture in an artwork.
We began the year exploring the artistic process. Our Kinder cuties read the story, "The Dot," By: Peter H. Reynolds. The story is a wonderful example of growth mindset & creativity. We made a giant dot for our cafeteria stage & each student made their own individual dot to celebrate "National Dot Day."

Dots with Paint
Next, we explored lines using STEAM centers.
Stay tuned! Kindergarten will soon learn how to upload their first artwork to Artsonia!
Our giant interactive Dot mural inspired the whole school to make dots!
I can identify many kinds of lines. I can use lines in my artwork.
Stay Tuned, We are in the process of describing how art helps us understand other cultures!
I can use lines to create pattern.
Researching the artist, Kelsey Montague; students had fun using their imagination to create patterns. Kelsey Montague is famous for her giant interactive street art. Stay tuned, each 2nd grader made a feather to feature in our upcoming December showcase!
We are currently experimenting with augmented reality & green screen!
I can use lines to show movement in an artwork.
We had fun looking at old school & new school techniques used in comic books & animated movies that demonstrate use of movement.
Students made their own movement art using traditional methods & augmented reality! I love how they included their own personalities.
One-point perspective uses the element of art SPACE to create an illusion of depth or distance in a 2D artwork.
I can use lines to show movement. 4th grade students chose from 3 different moving optical illusions to study & draw using one-point perspective techniques. Later we will include augmented reality!
I can discuss the characteristics of abstract & non objective art.
We began this project inspired by the artist, Chuck Close who overcame obstacles in his life to accomplish greatness. Chuck Close pioneered grid drawing & abstract art in the 21st century. We used his methods to create our very own abstract grid portraits.
