5th graders have been finishing up a unit on Picasso. This week they've been painting abstract faces inspired by Picasso. They used tints and shades of either blue or red to mimic Picasso's "Blue Period" or "Rose Period" artwork. Ask a 5th grader about what kind of emotions Picasso showed in his work with his blue or red paint.
4th graders have been making faux batiks as we learn about the art of Zanzibar. We are also incorporating sewing into this project. The students are sewing on burlap with yarn, and then I will sew their batik pieces to the middle of the burlap with the sewing machine. Some students enjoyed the sewing so much that they wanted to sew more outside of class. Here is Alee's sewing creation she finished at home with the help of her grandma...impressive, right?!
