Second grade students have been learning about the art element of line.
One way students learned about line was exploring how to use a ruler.
Everyone used pencil to create some repeating line in a pattern.
After feeling comfortable with the pencil, students moved on to colored pencil with repeating lines.
Second graders also explored line with scissors.
Everyone learned there are many ways and tools to use line in creating art.
Kindergarten, first and fourth grade students explored the concept of texture with a heart design.
Each group of students approached the design problem in a different manner.
Kindergarten students were introduced to the concept of texture and what exactly it is.
First grade students reinforced their ideas of what texture is and how to create it.
Fourth grade students created their own types of texture and used mixed media to create various types of texture.
Visual texture is the illusion of having physical texture. Every material and every support surface has its own visual texture and needs to be taken into consideration before creating a composition. Texture in these media are generally created by the repetition of shape and line.
Finally students added a wash of watercolor to their textured heart designs.
Everyone loves the painting process, and liquid watercolor is a great medium for intense color.
This project required a lot of focus and concentration, yet every grade enjoyed this exercise in color, design and texture.
Here are some examples of the students’ work.
Third grade students have been working on designing shoes.
Students have been learning about using texture as an element of design.
Everyone has been excited about creating and designing their own shoes.
Students have focused their attention to design, color and texture as they incorporate these elements into their project.
Third graders really enjoy incorporating many tools together in their shoe design.
This project has sparked students’ imaginations as they wanted to create many different designs.
Here are some examples of the students’ shoe designs.
