Drawing, painting and 3D art work
In June we will work on two art competitions and a 3D project.
Third & 4th week of June:
Modelling Clay and Playmais projects:
We will be working with modelling clay creations that start with simple shapes: a ball, oval, egg &/or teardrop shape, and coils. The animals/figures/fruit must all stand upright. Children will try to make expressive faces using different tools, and add clothing and hair.
When working with Playmais children will be encouraged to build an environment and add animals, people, trees, plants, houses, etc., basically anything they can think of!
Try this at home using the instructional PDF we will use during art:
We will submit entries in July to Look and Learn Art, a London-based picture library specialising in educational images and a member of BAPLA (the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies). I will submit the children’s finished artwork electronically.
Participation is on voluntary basis and small cash prizes are awarded. We are doing this for entirely for fun.
Lesson Plan: My Mona Lisa
Learn about Leonard’s Mona Lisa and make a line drawing by drawing from a print of the Mona Lisa upside down.
Take your line drawing and turn into your own Mona Lisa parody. Bring her into the 21st Century!
Decide how you want people to feel when they look at your picture? Paint her like the Fauves.
Learning objectives: Expose children to the following artistic concepts: Proportions of the human head, different kinds of lines, shapes, patterns, values, and symbolism. Give them tricks to create a harmonious composition through balance and symmetry, which can be applied to any art project. Drawing from the imagination.
