Finished monster forms.

Fourth grade finally finished their monster sculptures (I mean forms).  It is a good lesson on going with your mistakes because there is no right or wrong way to sculpt a monster....after all monsters are not real right?

Secondary Colors.

After the first graders learned about the primary colors they then naturally learned about secondary colors.  We also used depth, space, moving line, and perspective in this one.  These are cool....first grade is cool.

Color schemes.

Fifth grade discussed lines and colors.  We discovered that color schemes can make the compositions work.  If it wasn't for color schemes you would not even see the leaves in these pictures.  The students enjoyed this one more than I thought they would.

Clay monsters are coming!

In fourth grade we are sculpting monster forms.  The students absolutely love clay.  These are simple monster heads that they designed ahead of time.  A form is an object that takes up space in all directions.....in case you did not know.  It is also one of the six art elements.  I will show finished ones when we get there.

Primary Colored monsters.

Kindergarten got in on the primary color action as they drew monsters using just the primary colored markers.  We discussed color, line, shape, and pattern....I am sure they all got the lesson!  If not, then it was at least a good time.
