Nature inspires so much in art and the changing of seasons makes it that much more exciting. Fall is my favorite! Colorful leaves, shapely pumpkins, and spooky decor, need I say more? We are now using the lines, that we will forever talk about, to create shapes in the art classroom. We have been discussing the two different types of shapes, geometric and organic, and how we apply them in creating art. Because pumpkins are one of the most interesting organic shapes, I insisted that every class create one or two of a few. And they are AMAZING!!!
Sixth grade has done amazing Egyption Sarcophagus art for the Egyptian Fair! They applied lines in patterns, hieroglyphics, and symmetry in creating their burial tomb.
All students have made feathers, along with help me make sure that the staff is represented, in the “What lifts you?” interactive artwork inspired by Kelsey Montague.
We’ve been busy if you can’t tell!
