Sixth grade students created paper flowers for Mother’s Day this year.

At the beginning of this project students were not sure if they would like it, some of them feeling they may be too old for this type of a project.

By the end of this studio class everyone was really focused and enjoyed the project.

This flower building required the students to follow directions and use their hands to fold and mold a medium-size flower.

Bug building

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sixth grade students have been developing bugs from 3D shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After researching bugs and the shape of bugs, students were given a cylinder to use to create their bug.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had different ideas on how to begin building a 3D shape.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Most students began with painting their cylinder.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As the process of building continued the students’ creativity grew.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone worked at a different pace, fostering an environment of mutual encouragement.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students were required to do problem solving as they built their bugs.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

There were many collaborations during the creative process as students aided each other.  I am looking forward to seeing their completed creations.

Painting snowflakes

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fourth grade and sixth grade students worked on snowflake paintings based on micro-photographs of actual snowflakes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students outlined the snowflake drawings with sharpie markers for a permanent line.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

 

Next the students added a watercolor wash to the background for a deeper color.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students then added several layers of white acrylic paint over their snowflake drawings.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required the students to focus and build their brush skills as they fill in the flakes with white acrylic.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step was to add a coat of gloss to seal their image for display.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are some examples of their paintings now on display at Willard Elementary School.

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.

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