We had a successful first week of art. Most of the art time was devoted to discussing rules, expectations, and routines. All grade levels started their monthly art journal. This is a project I am so excited to do with all the students. Each month students will create an artistic representation of the feelings/emotions for the month. The lessons and expectations were modified to meet the needs of the various grade levels.
Students were introduced to the 3 styles of Art (Realism, Abstract, and Non-Objective). The focus of the Art Journals was non-objective art (this is art that has a non-identifiable subject, and no attempt to represent an object). In class we looked at Wassily Kandinsky’s non-objective art pieces.
The students will need one more week to complete their July entry.
