Let’s put it in perspective…

Standard

Check out these fab one point perspective pics my 5th graders are working on. Each 5th grade is doing it a little differently as far as placement of the horizon line and vanishing point go, so once I get all the pictures posted there will be several variations.

Piles and Piles and Piles

Of ORNAMENTS!

I found this picture on Pinterest a couple of years ago and I pinned it with intentions of trying it with my 5th graders.

I didn’t attempt it until this year.  Mrs. Crisco over at Color It Like You Mean It! also made these and they are so pretty.  The kids are loving it and they are doing a fantastic job.  Can’t wait to see them all displayed!

Starry Night in the Pumpkin Patch

Standard

I tried something new with second grade this year when we talked about Van Gogh and Starry Night. Instead of adding the little town, we added some pumpkins. We also discussed overlapping and space while drawing our pumpkins.

Art Elements Infographic

Standard

Here’s our first entry into our fifth graders art journal. We created an Infographic to showcase our knowledge of the art elements. I found this at artroom104.blogspot.com through Pinterest.

Blast Off!

Standard

I found this project on Pinterest but its original source is one of my favorite art blogs, smArtClass. I love Natalie’s bright, beautiful photography.

The kids loved watching a shuttle launch on YouTube and looking at pictures of outer space. They did a great job on each part and I think they have turned out so great!

Here are a few finished products:

4th Grade NC Seascapes

Standard

So in 4th grade, we get to talk about one of my favorite places – the beach! We are creating seascapes, inspired by the NC coast and this beautiful post at the Clever Feather. We are also including discussions about the elements of art: line, color, and space. They had a hard time with the waves initially, but after breaking it down into more simple forms (draw a C, etc.), they felt much more successful. I’ll continue adding pictures as we go!

Cut Paper Still Life

Standard

These cute little fruit bowls are the work of 2nd graders! We discussed still life’s and creating space in our artwork. First we drew the table cloth with a pattern. Then cut out a bowl and glued it to the table, leaving the top of the bowl open to tuck in the fruit. Then we used paper from the scrap box to create fruit. They had to have at least 4 different types of fruit in their bowl and at least one piece laying on the table. If they had time at the end, they could add something in the background like a window or a clock, using a crayon.
