3rd Grade, The Art Cafe, Ms.Slom

By in ,

In 3nd grade the Element of Art that we are learning is “Space”. Space refers to the distance between elements that creates positive or negative spaces in a composition in an art work.

After reading two books about Picasso-Oooh! Picasso by Nil Niepold and The boy who bit Picasso by Antony PenRose, the students in third grade decided to build 3D guitars out of Brown kraft paper, paper carrier bags, paper towel rolls, tape and string. Once the construction of their guitars was completed the students, drew their own creations and colored in with chalk pastels. Both the 3D rendition and the drawings were very interesting.

The students enjoyed both activities.
