Building

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

First grade students explored building with squares and rectangles for their first art class this new school year.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Play is a great method for students to learn and explore while engaging their imaginations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students used the brightly colored shapes to create buildings, animals, flying machines and objects that can only be found through the creative process.

This was a great opening project to engage the students’ minds, hands and imaginations through visual art.

Beginnings

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Our first project of the 2016-2017 school year began with building.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Kindergarten students explored building with 3D geometric shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone was fully engaged as they explored building towers, castles and houses of the future.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We also explored building bridges and skyscrapers.

Learning through play builds skills that young artists use throughout their educational experience.  It’s great to start art off with fun!

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.

Collective sculpture

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fourth grade students from Richmond School completed their final project: a collective sculpture based on the art of Jean Dubuffet.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

First everyone completed painting their section of the sculpture white.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next students began to add color and lines based on the ideas of Jean Dubuffet, who used the limited pallet of red, blue, black and white.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fourth graders learned to work as a group as they built and painted their sculpture.

DubuffetPaume

Jean Dubuffet (31 July 1901 – 12 May 1985) was a French painter and sculptor.  He is perhaps best known for founding the art movement Art Brut, and for the collection of works—Collection de l’art brut—that this movement spawned. Dubuffet enjoyed a prolific art career, both in France and in America, and was featured in many exhibitions throughout his lifetime.  From 1962 he produced a series of works in which he limited himself to the colors red, white, black, and blue. Towards the end of the 1960s he turned increasingly to sculpture, producing works in polystyrene which he then painted with vinyl paint.

Here are three views of the students’ sculpture on display at the Art Junction in New Haven, Ohio.

Students began working in groups.  Each group was responsible for a different part of the sculpture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The fourth graders planned their part of the sculpture and began the process of creating their sculptural element.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Each group (and there are twelve groups in all) is making a different part of the sculptural figure.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone worked with recycled materials and glue as the forth grades worked together to create the sculpture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It’s exciting to see the students work together and prepare to paint in our next studio session.

Building skills

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As the 2014-2015 school year dawns my first task as an art teacher is to build and awaken the dormant creative spirit that lies within all my students.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Our first project in kindergarten is to explore building with shapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students are given a variety of shapes and building materials as they process to create sculptural inventions.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been very inventive with their creations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

First grade students have been using a different building material that is based upon squares and rectangles.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This building medium has required the students to view construction from a cubistic standpoint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students will use these introductory sessions of building in their creative explorations this school year.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Art has a way of engaging the whole learning experience as students will carry their creative experience into the rest of their school day.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I hope that you will follow us this year on our creative journey.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The students are excited to learn, and maybe their experience will inspire you!
