4/5 Art Update – November 2015

IMG_5193Our fourth and fifth grade students made really interesting collages, inspired by the abstract collages of Henri Matisse. Some students made representational images, of things like horses, action heros or camper trailers, while others made non-representational designs. Images are soon to come on Artsonia.

Since the wrap-up of the Matisse-inspired collages, the 4/5 Art students have done research on animals, especially regarding adaptations, like body parts, body coverings and behaviors. After reading a wonderful book, Mixed Beasts, by Kenyon Cox and Wallace Edwards, they are beginning to create their own mixed beasts. Ultimately, students will create tunnel books. By the end of the unit, they will have had an opportunity to use science, technology and language arts in the creation of their art project.
