Week of August 1st

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.
