Hopkins Art Room News
- This French sculptor was born in 1840 in Paris, France.
- Repeatedly rejected by the E`cole des Beaux-Arts, he earned his living by doing decorative stonework.
- Sculpture's realism was so great that he was accused of forming its mold on a living person.
- Became so successful he established a workshop where he executed only molds, leaving the casting of bronze and the carving of marble to assistants.
- Created such works as: The Gates of Hell, Dyanmic Bust of Victor Hugo, The Thinker and Winged Victory.
Kindergarten has been busy learning the order of the rainbow...ROY G BIV. We began by creating a base and colored it in the ROY G BIV order, Now we are adding texture to our art.
First graders are finishing up their moving leaves. We discussed how art can show movement and used warm/cool colors to fill in our space. Our projects were completed by adding texture.
Second graders are working on creating a self-portrait. We have learned about the shape of the head and placement of facial features.
Third graders are completing their Blue Dogs inspired by George Rodrigue. Each student gave their dog 2-3 symbols to represent what they want to be when they grow up. We also learned about complementary colors and used these combinations for their dog and background to really make them stand out. We are completely this project by using an app called Photospeak to make our dogs come to life.
Fourth graders are learning about the color wheel and how to make tints and shades. Using non-traditional medium, students are creating their color wheels by designing a mandala onto a record.
Students are learning to draw from direct observation an image of a bowl of fruit. Values are then added using stippling. The still-lifes are then completed by adding water color to add color.
