Experimenting with movement, shadow casting, and art! Students can create figures from tinfoil, clay, pipecleaners, or other materials, then draw how they believe the shadow would appear. For very young students, they can trace and color the shadow their figure makes when lit with a flashlight.
Piet Mondrian In Low Relief - "The students were excited to see if they could "fool" the viewer into thinking that their art was a flat painting rather than a relief sculpture. We set out to see if we could "keep it flat" by creating a composition of horizontal and vertical lines, geometric shapes and colors without value shifts."
Fourth Grade artists are continuing their architecture unit of study, but this time we are working on form. Form is the element of design that describes three-dimensional objects, or things that have height, width and depth. Students are building two-story houses out of cardboard, and trying to give their houses a sense of character. Students LOVE working in three-dimensions!
