Digital Learning Day
February 2nd, 2016
"Paul wake up! Wake up!" they said, shaking me. My oldest brother David was holding a sled. "It's a Snow Day! No school today!"
With my heart pounding in my chest I swung myself out of bed as my other brother dragged me to the window. All was white. It was a Snow Day.
Expressing Thoughts and Feelings Through Art
For your digital learning day assignment you need to...
1. Create an original work of art that captures what thoughts and emotions you're feeling on your Snow Day. Your artwork could be a drawing. A painting. A collage. A photo or set of photos edited in Snapseed. It could be a digital drawing. It could be anything! Remember that good art requires good thinking and planning. Take your time! Make this meaningful!
2. Post a picture of your artwork to our Schoology page. When you post your picture include a sentence or two explaining what thoughts/emotions influenced your artwork. There's a folder for you all called "Digital Learning Day Upload Album" and your artwork can go in there. Check out the example from Mr. Stanley!
Examples of Expressive Art from History
The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso
Can you guess what emotion Pablo Picasso was feeling when he painted this? Very blue. Very dark. The guitarist's head is hanging low. This painting screams sadness.
The Scream by Edvard Munch
Can you guess what emotion Edvard Munch was feeling when he painted this? Bright, bold colors. A face that shows shock and amazement. A beautiful sunsetting sky. This painting is all about wonder.
The Thinker by Auguste Rodin
Can you guess what emotion Auguste Rodin was feeling when he sculpted this? Dark, flat color. A muscular figure holding his chin, watching. Silent. Still. Thinking.
