about our 2nd six weeks of art
We learned all of those these past two weeks and did some amazing projects corresponding the elements of art. For lines, we learned expressive and contour
lines that form organic or geometric shapes. Organic shapes are found in nature
and are mostly curvy while geometric shapes consists of straight lines. Also, we
made sculptures and art that artists such as Henry Matisse and Peter Reginato
have created. We have studied these artists' history before and after they built their creations. Recently, we made sugar skulls for Day of the Dead and displayed them on the Tyler Museum of Art. Also, we made a huge picture of an alligator using pieces of paper distributed equally for each student to complete.
We will learn about texture, color, and space on the upcoming weeks.
DAY OF THE DEAD
We learned how to draw skeletons. Even though skeletons are creepy, my teacher told me that the Day of the Dead is not scary at all. It's actually fun!!!!!
Can you draw like this? Don't worry it's not hard, you can actually do this yourself. It's easy to do interactive contour drawing and all you need is you and your pencil.
This is the time where you get to use your scissors in art. Cutting paper might not be your specialty but you can create amazing art just with pieces of paper, glue and scissors. Try it!
