Via the Google Art Project, second grade students viewed vessels that were made a century ago, hundreds of years earlier and even some that were thousands of years old. They also learned a little about Cincinnati's own Rookwood founder Maria Longworth Nichols Storer. The second grade students then became vase designers. Now, students are turning their two-dimensional designs into three-dimensional sculptures.
For a short time my classroom was taken over by the first grade students' fun paper puppets!
Last Friday seventh grade students were instructed to do the following:
Select a white piece of paper from the scrap box.
Fold, bend, or roll your paper into a sculpture.
After placing your sculpture on the table, note the shadows on the sculpture as well as the cast shadows.
Draw your new sculpture.
Students took the time to observe and draw their sculptures as realistically as possible. The results were fantastic and some of the drawings evolved into illustrations of forests, maps and other subjects.
Our first grade students are our future innovators.:) Check out more pictures in my photo albums.
Line, shape, color, value, texture, form and space are the elements of design. Artists learn how to utilize these elements in order to create advertisements, graphic and product design, architecture, painting and so on. These examples of the elements were created by fifth grade students.
The seventh grade students' one-point and two-point perspective drawings were displayed for Open House. Their optical illusion drawings will be displayed during the art show in April.
Eighth grade votive sculptures
The eighth grade students made small clay votives. These little sculptures symbolize individual prayer intentions and may be given as offerings for prayers that have been answered or kept as reminders to pray.
Check out my photo albums to see more first grade penguin sculptures! The penguin sculptures will be displayed in the first grade classrooms during Open House.
