Students learn about what radial design is and where it can be found in nature. We choose a theme for our radial design squares - can you guess the themes each of these students chose?
Modern Mona Lisa
We put a modern spin on the oh-so-popular Mona Lisa. We learn a lot about her history, but change her up to make her unique and modern. This year an additional challenge was using paper that is the actual size of the real Mona Lisa!
Students learn about building forms and mixing colors to create the perfect shade of yellow for a hamburger bun!
Magazine bowls are made with recycled magazines! I love projects that repurpose things that would otherwise be thrown away.
After figuring out how to build our house, we construct pieces out of clay slabs and assemble. Glaze is used as the finishing touch to make these clay houses stand out! Note in the pictures our houses get quite diverse, with a barn, light houses and even a tee pee!
We learn about 2 major Op Artists: Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. What amazes me, and the students, is the fact that both artists created their illusions as painters. We learn how to create our own op art, and do our best to make it look like an illusion.
Paper beads have been made since Victorian times in England!
