Lines, lines, everywhere there’s lines…

Standard

This bulletin board is a combination of the third grade’s Starry, Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh and the six grade’s black ink square designs.  I got the Starry, Starry Night example from my friend and fellow art teacher, Michelle Osborne.  We looked at Van Gogh’s artwork and discussed lines, emotions and color.  The kids loved creating the sky portion of this project.

Sixth grade created a composition of overlapping squares in black ink.  They had to create a pattern, but never repeat it.  This project helped a lot of my six grade ARTalympic students.  Students had to also incorporate their name somewhere into the composition.  I liked both of these projects so I decided to hang them together.

Colorful Clowns

Standard

Kindergarten has been working with shapes and lines to create our colorful clowns.  We talk about the emotions that we feel when we see a clown and what colorful costumes, hair, and makeup they have.  This crayon resist used crayons and watercolor as the media.  We traced all our pencil lines in crayon and then painted in with watercolor.  I also painted with tempera at my other school.  Students tried to cover up all the space on the paper with their clown and polka dots.  Patterns were used on the buttons and stripes.  These creative clowns are always so colorful!
