Lesson One

Art  – Degas and Movement

Students will learn to look at living things from the perspective of HOW THEY MOVE by sketching and studying them.

We JUST started a new study before break… the study of MOVEMENT! This is a harder concept for younger students to grasp. I believe in reminding them that we need to practice art as we practice any other sport or hobby. This reminder is beneficial in their “art self-esteem”.  Many students want give up thinking that they CAN’T, not understanding that they need to practice, practice, PRACTICE!

As a refresher, please watch:

Now you practice drawing a person walking!

3/4  and 5/6 

Below is a link that you can use to guide you through a Degas oil painting. Feel free to improvise as needed. Remember that the purpose of this study is to understand how the body moves and capture it on a canvas. Also, our goal is not to have you COPY someone’s artwork, but to learn from it and make it your own. 

Supplies needed: sketch paper or multi-purpose paper, oil pastels or colored pencils, sketching pencil, fine tip ink pen (optional)

Instructions included in video. Pause when necessary.

K/1 and 1/2 

Have your K-2nd grader complete the above “walking person” assignment. I have decided to give them an abstract assignment in movement, where they get to be creative. 

Have students watch:

Have your student select one of the options below as inspiration for their

“Art in Music and Motion” piece:

Supplies: multiple colors of construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons, pastels or markers, permanent marker

  1. Select the style of abstract (select either “music” or “dance”)
  2. Sketch the picture that you want. The last picture was drawn, colored, and then cut into 4 quadrants and re-organized to make it abstract. 
  3. Use construction paper to cut shapes to fill in your sketch.
  4. Outline any areas you want to stand out (the subject of the picture)

BOREDOM BUSTER!!! (Can be completed by all ages, but suitable for 3rd and up)

In our classroom, I have consistently been giving additional assignments for students who work ahead. This is our at home “tile”. Students can take this out and work on it when they are bored. 

Instructions included in video link below:

3D Hand Drawing – Optical Illusion

Supplies: paper, markers, ruler

  1. Trace your hand
  2. Us multiple colors to rotate drawing a line (using a ruler) on each side of your traced hand
  3. Attaching the line on both sides of the hand by making a curve to make a 3D illusion

Send pictures of completed projects to :

heidi.raynortrea@gmail.com

Lesson Two

Art-Pointillism and George Seurat

Students will learn how to blend paint and create the illusion of shape by using Pointillism. 

I am so excited to have a perfect stay at home project for your children!

In class, we watched:

Art with Mati and Dada – George Seurat

Students have already watched this video, but it will be a great reminder. We were learning about how our brains blend moving colors, as well as colors next to each other! Take a walk around the neighborhood and look at a blade or grass, a tree trunk, or a leaf. Is it one solid color? What do you see from far away vs. close up? 

WATCH:

Pointillism for Kids – RSE Art Appreciation

As we move through the animal kingdom, we are beginning to discuss habitat. Students have already started their desert pictures, and we have started discussing other habitats. 

K/1 and 1/2 

  1. Have your student sketch a tree with a minimal background. You can use the idea from the above POINTILLISM FOR KIDS video for younger students, and have them trace their hand  as a base for the tree. 

(We have focused A LOT on sketching over the past few weeks. How do we STUDY art? We need to practice, practice, PRACTICE like any other subject or sport!)

  1. After your student is happy with their sketch, have them trace the tree if they did not use the hand/tree method.
  2. With limited access to supplies, I will give additional options for the project. If you have paint, BRAVO! Use a Q-tip or the back of a paint brush to make individual dots to fill in the canvas. Focus on BLENDING or overlapping colors to create new ones (primary colors only) or putting colors next to each other that will create the illusion of highlights and lowlights. 
  3. If you do now have paint, thicker markers work very well!

3/4 and 5/6 

Most students have a project started at school. Since they have already had a trial run, they should have an idea of the habitat that they are interested in drawing. There are no limits to the habitat, other than keeping it simple and not adding distracting “extras”. 

  1. Sketch and perfect your pencil drawing. Check to see if you have water color paper, water color or other paint, or if you will have to use markers (or get creative 😊)
  2. Use Q-tips or the back of a paint brush to make individual dots to fill the canvas. 

THAT’S IT! Take your time and focus on highlights and lowlights. Take breaks. Take a step back and look at your project from far away.

Lesson Five: Live Lesson March 30th

Lesson Six: Monday April 6th with Mrs. Raynor

Objective:

Students will continue to build on their understanding of movement through a hands-on, 3-Dimensional art assignment.

Assignment:

Read the lesson below and watch the video link provided.

Come prepared to class on April 13th with one of the following: foil, playdough, clay, homemade dough.

Art Lesson:

Welcome back! I hope you were able to at least attempt the walking stick-figure assignment! The Degas (ballet dancer) assignment from last week may take a few tries, but watching the video online and pausing as you draw is very helpful! If you haven’t tried this assignment yet, look up last week’s lesson and give it a try! Send me a picture of your finished project!

As we continue to develop the skill of drawing movement in objects, we will be looking at 3-dimensional art that you can touch! In 1949,  a man named Albert Giacometti created a sculpture  called The Square. The sculpture shows several people walking in a city square (Art Treasury is a great resource!). Giacometti enjoyed watching people walk in the street and studied their movements.

giacometti-city-square

Your assignment, should you choose to take it, is to build a 3D person out of clay, foil, dough or even cardboard. Study people in your house as they walk around. Watch your neighbors as they walk through the neighborhood. Pay attention to how their arms move in relation to their legs and the rest of their body. Look at whether or not the body leans forward while it moves. What is the length of the arms in relation to the rest of the body?  Please post your projects on Facebook, Bright wheel, or bring them back next week so you can show them off!

Lesson Eight: Wednesday, April 8th with Mrs. Raynor

Objective:
Students will continue to build on their understanding of texture and shape.

Assignment:

Read the lesson below and watch the video links. Come prepared to class on April 15th with the following: pencil, sketch pad, eraser.

Art Lesson:

As we move onto our last full month of school, we are focusing on skills that will help us prepare for our final assignment. This assignment will focus on modern times. Cat, by Quan was created in 1747. Degas drew his ballerinas in 1897. Our study of color contrast, by Kandinsky, was painted in 1913.

Which brings us to today! We will be using our sketchbooks for the next few weeks to work on sketchings of modern day, or man-made, “things”. Please be sure to bring your materials to our ClassZoom so we can work together in our sketchbooks.

Vocabulary:

Texture, in art, gives a PERCEIVED surface quality. This means that the texture is not really there, it just looks like it is. We are drawing something on a thin, flat piece of paper. When the sketch is complete, it gives us the feeling that it is something that we can touch or hold.

Shape, in art, refers to an enclosed object. As we advance in art, it is referred to as formForm has length, width, and depth.

Using both texture, shape, and shading the artist can sketch to create the illusion of a 3-dimensional object.

3-6 Video:

Lesson Nine: 4/6 and 4/8 Zoom with Mrs. Raynor

Lesson Ten: Live Zoom class with Mrs. Raynor Monday, April 13th

-3rd – 6th colored pencils or chalk pastel, pencil, eraser, sketch paper or water color paper

-K-2nd construction paper (white or black, blue, orange, green), glue, pencil.

-Alternate assignment uses colored pencils and paper only.

As we close in on our last few weeks of school, I am excited to reintroduce animals into our art projects! The ostrich is a very interesting animal! Can you research 3 interesting things about the ostrich and bring it to class next week? We will be discussing the ostrich while we complete our projects, so come prepared!

ostrich

Watch video: Simple ostrich sketch

One of my favorite things to draw is birds. I love birds! Even as pets! My favorite characteristic of birds would have to be their  unique feathers. Feathers are very interesting! Did you know that the color of a feather determines its strength? In addition to ostrich facts, come to class with one interesting fact about feathers.

Lesson Twelve: Art with Mrs. Raynor, Wednesday, April 15th

Students will continue to expand on their knowledge of texture, shape, and form while creating 3-D sketches.

Assignment: Prepare for class next week by reading the lesson below (and watching all videos). Bring the following to class on Wednesday, April 22nd:

Sketchbook, pencils, erasers

How do we draw objects to make them look like they can be held or touched?

Last week we learned briefly about form. FORM is important in art because we combine length and width with depth.

How do we create the illusion of depth?

That is a loaded question! Layering objects, making some things larger and others smaller, shadows, highlights and low lights (value)…there are MANY techniques we use to create depth. Did you know objects that are further away appear lighter?

Who LOVES a good sunset!??? We ALL do!!! My favorite thing about a sunset is when the world seems to get darker and become covered in shadow,  yet the sky is still lit up in brilliant colors. Before the sun sets, and shortly after, you can see beautiful silhouettes if you capture the light and shadows just right.

shadow.jpg

Watch: Real life silhouette

Watch: A Silhouette Animation

Silhouettes can create powerful images because they include few visual distractions. The eye immediately drifts toward the subject(s). Sometimes complete stories are told in silhouettes for simplicity. This week, be on the lookout for a good sunset. Can you see something in the distance that lacks detail? Is it a complete shadow? You are looking at a silhouette!

Lesson Nineteen: Monday, May 4th with Mrs. Raynor

Students will continue to observe and sketch using their five senses.

Please come to class next week, May 11th, with; your Garden Art Journal, colored pencils, pencil, eraser

Be sure to read the lesson plan below and watch all videos.

I hope that you are adding to your Garden Art Journal! I want you to continue to observe and sketch things that you see in nature. Make sure you jot down any observations while you are outside. Is it bright outside? Does the sun make your skin feel warm? Do you notice certain animals that like the sun? Does it smell different outside when it rains? Leave space near your sketch to answer these types of questions. Be prepared to share!
