Starry Night Grade 3/4

IMG_2783

Here is a link to a gorgeous interpretation of Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. We used this as a tuning in activity. (Interactive Starry Night – YouTube) 

Our school has been focusing on using describing starters for creating sentences so we have been using these in the art room too. The sentences can be about colour, shape, size, position, texture, number and doing. some of the examples of simple observations students have made for Starry Night are;

The tower is next to the village (position)IMG_2784

The painting has lots of swirls and lines in it (shape)

The night sky takes up most of the painting (size)

There are seven stars in the picture (number)

The mist is swirling in the wind (doing)

It looks like it is swirly and soft (texture)

 

In art we have been making Vincent van gogh paintings. In the first two weeks, we have been painting the backgrounds using food dye. It’s different to use than paint it’s much more watery and spreads more quickly than paint. We have to be careful that we don’t go through the page. We used blue, purple, green and yellow and tried to do lots of swirls on our work, we weren’t allowed to leave any white showing on our work. It was fun to try working with something different.

Grade 1/2AC Pop Art fun

We were really excited to see some of the Pop art examples on the computer, especially the modern versions of Michael Jackson and Star Wars. The Coca Cola can was very cool.

We drew pictures we had to draw 4 pictures but we couldn’t do them all different they had to be exactly the same. I did little flowers and Amity did turtles and Ella did flowers.

Next we coloured our pictures in except now we had to make them different by using different colours so they didn’t look the same anymore. Then we cut them out. After we had cut them out we stuck them onto the coloured paper we had painted last week.

I really liked drawing and colouring and drawing my Pop Art today – Amity

I liked colouring the pictures – Ella

My favourite part of Pop Art was colouring and drawing – Naomi.

We learnt that Pop Art used the same picture but different and bright colours. It was usually something popular that they drew.

POP ART 1/2S

IMG_2518

I enjoyed drawing pencils for my Pop art. I used brown  and blue, red and orange, yellow and red and green and red. I learnt that Pop art is fun and is a repeated object. We had to draw, colour and then cut out our pictures, next we glued one picture in each of the 4 squares. They all had to be facing the same direction.

3/4FJ Fancy Feet

IMG_2320

We have been working on fancy feet, it’s an artwork exploring pattern and colours. We used Primary colours to paint the feet but created Secondary colours where the colours overlapped. Before we could paint the feet we had to trace around them. we took our shoe off and had to put at least 6 feet on our page. After painting them we have outlined the feet and used black markers to create patterns in the background.

Prep Colour fun

IMG_2310Prep M had lots of fun today trying out new colours with paint.

We tried mixing colours today to try and see what we could make 🙂

We used the Primary colours and black and white.  We learnt that if you add too much black though it turns black. Black makes colours darker and white makes colours lighter.

I made purple by mixing red and blue, yellow and blue make green and I made pink by mixing red and white. I tried pink and brown together it made a dark pink. I used the colours to paint a person riding on a truck. Rishi

I made a messy painting. I mixed colours up and made dots. Some of the colours I mixed together were blue, red and white. Jack

I painted a unicorn. I mixed up red and white and painted the unicorn pink. Miah

I made a rainbow it had red, blue, pink, green, white, yellow and orange I mixed light blue. Kaydee

I mixed dark red I had to use black and red to make it. I used it to paint my robot. I also made a lighter black. Ethan

Do you want to make a snowman?

IMG_4735 IMG_4736

Prep students explored oil pastel and wash techniques to create their own snowmen.

 

The first step was to draw a snowman, we decided it needed 3 circles each one slightly smaller than the first, starting at the bottom of the page. Next we added a face (complete with carrot nose), arms and maybe some buttons or a bow tie, some had hats too.

 

After the snowman was drawn we needed to colour it in using oil pastel. We had to press very hard to create a barrier so the wash later wouldn’t cover our snowmen. It was hard work to do this bit.

 

When our snowman was coloured we put down newspaper and made sure our art smocks were on, then we painted over the whole page with blue food dye. We could see if we missed any colouring. This was the best bit of the project..

 

So…….. Do you want to build a Snowman?
