The Cat in The Hat
The Cat in The Hat
Students learned about LINE and SHAPE by creating patterns inside a Rhino. How fun!
Students learned about LINE and SHAPE using the DIRECTED LINE DRAWING technique to draw a Dr. Seuss inspired Cat in the Hat using PENCIL. They were asked for their images to look large and take most of the space in the paper.
Giraffes Can’t dance
Though this assignment students learned about LINE and SHAPE drawing a giraffe inspired by “Gerald the Giraffe” from the book “Giraffes can’t Dance”. This helped them work curved lines, and positioned different line sections on the drawing so as to make the giraffe appear to be dancing.
Jeff Koons Balloon Dog
Inspired by Jeff Koons’ iconic Balloon Dog series, students created their own brightly colored balloon dog from a series of traced ovals. A few swipes of paint give the balloon dog the illusion of a round, shiny form. Koons’ colorful Balloon Dog sculptures are so large that some are displayed outside, therefore, a cityscape is the perfect background for the collaged dog.
Romero Britto inspires our studnets to play with LINE and SHAPE and gettingto know POP ART. Studnets were asked to include different patters in their drawings and use thick black line outlines.
Recycled Sea Life Collage
Students created their own recycled sea life pictures by using any kinds of recycling objects.Throgh this project students learn about SHAPE by cutting out ORGANIC SHAPES to make the fish and coral in their COLLAGE. Students experienced with SPACE by spreading elements across the collage background to create a BALANCED COMPOSITION.
Jack and the Beanstalk
Through this assignment students learned about SPACE, and experimented with PERSPECTIVE by drawing their beanstalk large at the top of their paper and smaller toward the bottom.
They knew they were successful when Jack appeared to be high in the sky. Students also learned about CONTRAST and were asked to add PATTERNS to their landscape that stood out.
Through this painting students had to learn about movement and draw a frog in a YOGA style position. Inspiration was sought from the children’s book: Yoga Frog by Nora Carpenter.
