talk about architecture. The second grade was amazed to see so many elements of architecture in our studio. We watch a power point on houses of the world and realized that not everyone lives in the same kind of structures. We discussed form+function in regards to our creations.
We started sketching our structures today. The students had to add seven elements of architecture to their creations. We are using books and booklets that are filled with different elements as resources.
Wow! I want to live in these houses.

The fourth grade started a still life drawing. The artists started with blind contour line drawings, contour line drawings and line drawings. Many of the artists could not quite keep themselves from looking at their papers for the blind exercise so I had them make their drawing in a bag. The drawings were completed with oil pastels.

The second grade artists just finished their study of the pop artist Jasper Johns. The student artists loved learning that Jasper Johns used symbols that we see all the time as design objects instead of information objects. They also enjoyed using the stencils to create their work just like Mr. Johns did.
