Kindergarten students learned about the direction of a line such as horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines. Then we focused on the different types of lines such as straight, curvy, zigzag, and invented. We then used three lines to create a landscape. These three lines represent a different area of the landscape: foreground, middle-ground, and background (which gives an illusion of space). Students also worked with oil pastel and learned blending and smudging techniques.
Mrs. Foss' Fourth Grade Sole Necklaces- Today students used the texture of their shoes to make prints in clay.
During our first week in Art, students collaborated to complete a Chuck Close inspired drawing. Students then wrote what they thought was the most important rule in the Art Room as the center of their art piece. Fifth graders arranged the artwork to create a pattern. We decided to make this our "Rule Board." If students need to reflect on the rules, they may go to the rule board and take an "Art Room Rules" sheet. This sheet has a list of the top five rules they have created as a school. They will circle the behavior that needs improvement and write out ways to improve the behavior. They will turn in the reflection log in a monthly folder available on the rule board.
