So my after school (4th 5th 6th graders) learned about Notan designs and I will be honest and say their first projects looked sloppy and not up to par. So the next day when they showed up, we did the same lesson again (after I preached how disappointed I was with behaviors that were getting in the way of making great art). The redo was way worth it. Teachers were complimenting left and right over these. It was a great lesson to tie with symmetry and positive and negative space/shapes.
I love George Rodrigue. (I even have a signed book by him) I haven't taught the blue dog lesson in 2 years but my 1st graders loved learning WHY is BLUE DOG BLUE?!?!
If you don't know, you'll have to pick up the book and find out!
My Kiln has been running ALL WEEK non stop for getting 4th grade's projects fired and glazed. Their Van Gogh inspired clay sunflowers turned out so lovely!!
2nd graders just completed these cute clown portraits. This is the first year I didn't have any of my students say they thought clowns were scary! yay!
Chalk was used, white china marker to outline in white.
This might be my last student art update for a while, seeing how the ASU Art Show is in 2 weeks and I have to get all my students pieces together for this big honorary show!
