Letter design

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fourth grade students have recently completed a letter design project.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fourth grade students are exploring texture and design with letter shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As they began this project they used various types of texture to fill a space in the letter H.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next the students picked a color from the color wheel to fill in their letter adding analogous color to fill in the shape.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step in the project was to pick a complementary color for the background based on the color used for the letter H.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step was to add texture to the background of the project and insert analogous colors in the texture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This project stretched and challenged the fourth graders as it prepared them for our upcoming painting project with letters.

Shoe drawing

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Third grade students have been learning how to draw shoes using contour line.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have had to learn how to focus on what they are drawing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Third graders are learning to draw what they see and not draw what they think a shoe looks like.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This process requires a lot of focus from the students.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been using many different mediums from pencils to makers as they use a continuous line with this type of drawing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Contour drawing is an essential technique in the field of art because it is a strong foundation for any drawing or painting; it can potentially modify a subject’s form through variation within the lines. Its objective is to capture the life, action, or expression of the subject.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This method of drawing is widely accepted among schools, art institutions, and colleges as an effective training aid and discipline for beginner artists. In the hands of a talented master, the line that conveys contour can deliver a load of visual pleasure that can be astonishing.

Here are some examples of the students’ drawings.

Sixth graders are developing the theme of “Things I Love” through their ideas in their sketches.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students had to bring in images, drawings or photographs of something they love.

Students are combining their ideas into a collage-like image.
