Today was gallery walk day. Students picked three pieces of art from the gallery and wrote two stars and a wish for each.
We have been working with warm and cold colours. We worked these into landscapes that have fore-, mid-, and backgrounds.
We have been working on our pen and ink skills. We first learned about stippling, hatching, cross-hatching, and scrumbling and practiced our skills.
Then we practiced drawing one image repeatedly using our new skills.
After you have finished your abstract monochromatic colour art pieces, students need to create their own.
Here are some ideas from around the internet.
Today in art we will begin by learning how to make tints and shades of colours. We will make 3 different swatches. Here is a video to help us do that.
Once we have mastered that skill, we will be creating some monochromatic paintings. Picasso made many monochromatic paintings. These are paintings that just use shades and tints of one colour. The colours chosen create moods. For example, blue is a cool colour and creates a sombre or even depressing mood. Here are two examples.
We will be doing two monochromatic paintings. The first will be an abstract painting, like these below. Remember: you will be mixing your own paints!
Students needed to create a scene using at least 5 over-lapping layers of construction paper. They were able to design their own scenes. Many were very creative.
