Let The Shoe Begin…

I don’t know how this happened, but my classroom is looking like a fancy shoe factory days. Grade four just finished creating their colorful flip flops and grade five is just starting their shoe themed lino cut projects.

Take a look at the fun Ms Redlin’s class had with their fanciful flip flops.

 

A Very Busy Week

Want to know what has been going on in C100 this week. Lots!

Grade Three

Grade Three students have been busy decorating their brand new sketchbooks. Now that they are ready to go, I have given them a mission…a Sketchbook Mission. Mission #1 reviews and explores the color wheel with a little Pop Art twist, thanks to some inspiration from Keith Haring.

Grade Four

Grade Four students are getting their hands dirty as we start the year off with a clay projects. Students are creating their own sculptures once again inspired by our Artist of the Month, Keith Haring.

Grade Five

We are going to be creating some art in the dark, as we try to do some gesture and contour drawing in the dark. We won’t be using pencils and paper, we are using lights and cameras. We we also be doing another project at the same time using our iPads. Students will create their own Pop Art People using two apps Wooden Dolls 3D and Brushes 3.  I will have some great video to show you soon.

Monet’s Garden

Last month, we celebrated the work of Claude Monet. The students learned lots of things about this famous Impressionist. Inspired by his beautiful water gardens, my grade three classes tried to ‘bottle’ those beautiful colours with their waterlily project. Students covered bottle in various shades of blue and green tissue paper. They painted waterlilies on the bottles, trying to make it look like there was a hint of sunlight bouncing off the edge of the lily pads.
