Week of 10/17/2016

Hi All,

Here is what we have planned this week:

Kindergarten: The kindergarten students will continue continue working on their collages.  Then, they will use watercolor paints to create paintings.

1st Grade: These students will continue learning about color and value.  Each student will continue creating a color wheel and a value scale.

2nd Grade: The 2nd graders will continue creating drawings that use warm colors and cool colors.

3rd Grade: The 3rd graders will continue creating  complimentary color drawings.

4th Grade: Students in 4th grade will continue working on their self-portrait drawings.  To see the worksheets we are using in class, click HERE and HERE.

5th Grade: The 5th graders will continue learning about perspective.  I will explain that perspective is a technique that artists use to create the illusion of depth in a work of art and show examples of works of art using one-point perspective.  After watching a demonstration, each student will create a drawing that shows at least 3 objects in one-point perspective.  To see the instructions for the drawing, click HERE and then HERE.

6th Grade: These students will finish creating collages inspired by Henri Matisse. This week, each student will continue working on his / her final draft.

NOTE: Students who are unable to finish their work in school will be allowed to work on them before school or after school.  I will be available before school Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:15 – 8:45.  I will be available after school from 3:45 – 4:15.  I ask that students give one day’s notice if they are coming in before school or after school.  I also ask that students get written parental permission (an email or a handwritten note).

7th Grade: The students will continue learning about Conceptual Art. This week, students will finish their drawings based on instructions written by the artist Sol LeWitt.

NOTE: Students who are unable to finish their work in school will be allowed to take them home to complete them.  These drawings are due Friday @ 9:00 AM.

8th GradeThese students will also begin a project on Cubism.  I will show the students examples of Cubist paintings created by Pablo PicassoGeorges Braque, and Juan Grís.  I will talk about the influences of Cubism and point out the characteristics of a Cubist painting.  Then, each student will begin planning his / her Cubist still life painting in pencil.

As always, please let me know if there are any questions.
