Students in Mr. Veto's class are finishing up on a fun project. They were introduced to the abstract portraits of Pablo Picasso and are doing a collage inspired them. They are creating portraits based on the question - What if Picasso made witches?
Student chose two colors of paper after we talked about colors on the color wheel that would contrast each other or would blend together.
We also talked about a profile view compared to the front view of a face. I demonstrated how to combine the two into a Picasso-like face. They had fun creating these witches. They were able to use lots of creative choices as they worked on them.
I hope to get them up on our Artsonia Gallery soon!
Students in Mrs. Larvenz and Mrs. Vaugh's classes are finishing up on a fun Fall painting project.
By the end of Second Grade I want my students to be able to describe and draw directional lines. I want them to be able to tell you which way a horizontal, vertical, and diagonal or oblique lines goes. I also want them to be able to use these different lines in an artwork. This year we practiced using these lines in a pumpkin painting. Students had fun mixing colors and adding different lines on and around their painting.
After the paintings were finished students began to create an abstract digital artwork from their painting using the Percolator app on the iPad. Many students have to wait until next class to get their turn using one of our 6 iPads. I'm pleased to see students teaching other students to use this app. They had customizing their abstract pumpkins. We will upload these to our Artsonia gallery along with the paintings soon.
I'm very excited to be again teaching at Roosevelt this year! The students and I have such fun, creative classes together. I love the enthusiasm of our Roosevelt Bears!
