3rd and 4th Grade Art

We began a new project this week in art. They enjoyed the more immediate results of the landscape project and I wanted the students to have a quicker project to complete after the hard work they did on the ceramic unit. We began designing and sketching creatures that had at least five different elements to their design. Fur, metal, a head of a lion and a tail of a kangaroo, any combination of animal, vegetable or mineral could be used in the design of their creature. Attention to detail, form and use of imagination were the cornerstones of this project. The sketches will be transferred onto printing plates so the students can pull several prints of their image. They have created some wonderful designs and worked through several ideas. The 4th grade class began the drawing transfer this week and the 3rd grade will transfer their drawings on Monday.
