What’s Happening in Art?
In an effort to get students to really think creatively, grades 3-5 are working with an Art Unit called Replica and Response. With this unit each student used their Ipad to look up artwork that they were interested in. After a class of searching through a variety of art types, they decided on one artwork that really stood out for them. This is the artwork they will replicate and respond to. For the Replica art work they must create a copy, but in a new material or media to show creativity. For the Response art work they will create another work, that shows how that art work made them feel or what was inspiring about that work. I am looking forward to a very creative critique once all work is finished.
In grades K-2 we have moved on to the Element of Art: Form. We continue to work on the fundamentals of art. Breaking down each element and seeing how they work to create art. We will be doing a series of sculptures then drawings. All related to the element of art form.
