We have completed working on our “Big  Bird” art project that focuses on “line and pattern”.

The students have made big birds out of poster board and are painting and decorating them in tempera paints.

The students are now focusing on the element of Art “Color and Space”. Space refers to the distance between elements that creates positive or negative spaces in a composition in an art work. This will be doing a social studies/Art integration project. We will look at many Blue dogs painted by George Rodrigues (1944-2013)and Paul Klee’s (1879-1940) Cat, and read The Cat and the Bird by Geraldine Elschner. We will learn to draw both blue dog and Klee’s cat. Each student will then choose to painting either a dog or cat portrait on canvas with acrylic paints.
