The photo students finished their spring photo challenge and boy have they improved since our winter challenge! They turned in a TON of really high quality photos and I was really impressed! Make sure to click through the gallery to see these awesome photos close up!
The 6th graders completed an assignment involving paper folding and radial symmetry. We learned all about how to create symmetry in artwork and went over three basic folds for origami. The students then took those simple folds and created an 8 piece symmetrical radial relief sculpture. They turned out BEAUTIFUL!
The 5th graders spent some time glazing their new clay pots and also worked on a flextangle assignment. I gave each student a template for the flextangle and they had to create intricate patterns that would work together when finished. The fourth graders also got to create flextangles this week :)
This was actually my LAST week seeing my 3rd graders! Because of the way the schedules worked out with field trips etc, this was their last week of art. We started off class by talking about what they had learned this year in art, I had them write down the thing that stuck with them the most on a sticky note and we put them all up on the board. Some of them were so touching! I will share all their little notes and comments next week :) Then we did a quick continuous line drawing of an owl, they loved this silly technique! At the end of class I pulled out three large cardboard circles and we had an "art party" drawing all over them and having fun.
