In Fourth Grade the students study radial symmetry we learned how to create design using radial symmetry. Before we began, we studied the history of Mandalas and how they are represented in different cultures.
In Second Grade we are reviewing the author study of Eric Carl that they learned about in first grade. The students looked at a variety of Eric Carl's artwork and practiced drawing out animals for their collaborative book! The students chose a animal jungle theme!
In Sixth Grade the students are learning about the artist Chuck Close who was widely known for his portrait paintings. The students learned how to do his grid method to map out the right proportions! We discussed how Chuck Close was able to adapt his skills in art when he became paralyzed and how he problem solved through new obstacles.
