We have talked about how to name art supplies in English and how we use them in art class over the past few weeks. The target vocabulary in this project will be used over and over again in the following year. This week, we started learning color words. Students will have a nature walk and observe the colors in nature. At the end of the project, they’ll create their own landscape paintings with the desired colors.
We learned about shapes and lines, students created a variety of different art using these new concepts.
We focused on symmetry and composition and students created abstract symmetrical drawings in many shapes and colors.
Students learned about the basics of art. They knew how to read the information of artwork and how to label artwork with its title, creator, medium and size. When talking about medium, they did an experiment by mixing paints with egg yolk and glue to create different kinds of tempera paints. After this project, they began to learn shadows and lights in art. To make art more realistic, they should know how to shade the objects in drawings and paintings.
We continued learning about color and used oil pastels and paint to make feathers, students then worked in groups to create beautiful large collages of wings.
We continued learning about different ways to create animation, students made paper cutouts of backgrounds, like cities and mountains, and birds. We also started using our software to make simple bird animations showing birds flying across a landscape.
