Two point perspective

We did a building using the two point perspective in order to crate the 3D effect. We learnt how to draw it and what a vanishing points means.

These are the results!

Evening Forest Perspective Paintings

Using previous knowledge on creating shades of blue and perspective, students first used a blue and white paint palette to create shades of blue to create their evening sky. 

First they added white,  little by little to their blue, creating tints of blue, to form each ring starting with blue only from the outside edge. The center was left white to act as the moon in their sky.

Once their painting was dry, students painted cone shapes for trees with black tempera paint.

Branches were then added using smaller brushes and final details (smaller branches and a bird) were then added on the last day with black sharpie.

Winter Bears!

We drew our bears on white drawing paper in pencil to start. I did a guide for them. Then added we add the texture for the fur by drawing lots and lots of lines with a fine point sharpie. Second graders colored in the eyes and nose with a thicker sharpie except for the little white highlight to create light reflecting off the bears eyes and nose.

Secondly, we divided the sweater in 4 parts and we decorated it creatting differents patterns.

And these are the results!

Christmas tree!!

2nd Graders made a nice Christmas tree in class!.

First of all, we did the shape of the tree cutting the “goma eva” in strips. After that, we made a few holes on the “goma eva” in order to pass the stick through.

At the end, we made the support with white clay and we decorated as we like it.

Finally, with modelling clay we decorated the christmas tree making the Christmas ornaments and the star.

Shark!

Today we learnt how to draw a shark. We used watercolors in order to make the shadows and lights.

Self-portrait. Symmetry

After the last activity drawing the symmetrical animal, 4th graders learnt how symmetrical we are. In order to do this we create symmetrical self-portraits, an activity that uses precise measurement to get beautiful results

First of all, they have to take a picture about theirselves and cut it in half.  

Students glued their half-heads onto a piece of 9 x 12 white construction paper.

Using the ruler, students pick a starting point and measure how far it is from the line of symmetry. Then they measure that exact same distance on the opposite side, marking the spot with a dot.

And these are the results!

Piranha

We made a pattern art project with the students. It was really fun and the effect depends on opening the folded paper.

The students leart about some kinds of patters (lines, zig zags, squares, triangles etc…). Ones they know this variety and the effect of these patterns, we started foldering the paper and drawing our piranha!

While closed, students drew their fish in pencil adding detailed complex patterns in the fish’s body and/or fins.

Then they opened up the paper entirely so you could see the top and bottom parts of the fish with the paper in the middle blank. They then connected their lines from the fishes mouth from the top drawing to the bottom drawing, stretching it out and drawing the mouth wide open.

The students loved this lesson, we laghted a lot!

Symmetry

4th Graders leart about symmetry with this initial activity. They had to draw a half animal silhouette in a peace of black paper and cut it.

smart

After that they had to paint a piece of paper in order to make the background with watercolors with cool or warm colors.

And these are the results!

Paul Klee Project

With 1st ESO we started learning about the artist Paul Klee and his art work. We focused in the “Castle and Sun” painting, paying attention on the lines colours and shapes.

We worked in pairs and we did our version of this painting with some conditions. Our painting had to have: a circle, an arc, triangles, squares, rectangles and a semi-circle. Moreover we had to paint it whether warm or cool colours.
