Collectively the work began to take shape as dots and colors began to fill in the design.

It was fun to watch the students take ownership of their work as their skills increased.

Digital Collage

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fifth grade students have been exploring collage through the medium of digital photography.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students began with taking self portraits in black and white on a neutral background.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students photographed their partners in sections, focusing on parts of the face instead of creating a whole portrait.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step was to look at all of the images they had to work with on their collage.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After viewing the work of artist David Hockney and others who created collages from digital portraits, the students set to work on their own creations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had different ideas on how to process their collage.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Most students had fun with this open-ended collage project.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step was to glue down their images onto poster board.  The process was much like creating a puzzle of themselves.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are several examples of the students’ work which are now on display.

Fifth grade students recently participated in the City of Willard’s Arbor Day poster contest.

The poster contest was sponsored by the Willard Tree Commission.

Students were given the theme “Trees are good for life.”

After learning about Arbor Day, students created three ideas and picked their best idea for their poster.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Lettering was a large part of the students’ design for their posters.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had a variety of materials to choose from to create their poster.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I was very proud of the hard work most everyone put into their posters.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was a great project for the students to become aware of their community and environment and how they have a part in their local community.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students also learned about the process it takes to come up with an idea and turn it into a poster to educate their community.

Here are some examples of their posters:

Snowflakes

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Our first project back after Christmas break was creating snowflakes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students learned the steps to basic paper folding for a kirigami snowflake.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This project required the students to focus, follow directions and learn to control the paper as an art medium.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After folding the paper for a four point snowflake, students explored cutting out various shapes to create their snowflake.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As students reviewed their skills through the process of creating the paper sculptures, they grew confident in their abilities.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone was happy with the skills they developed through the making of snowflakes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Art class allows students the opportunity to combine learning many subjects and using many new tools and skills to build a holistic learner.
