Today is a half-day, which means, unfortunately we miss art class. Grade 4's, be sure to complete your "Visible Thinking" handout and bring to next Wednesday's class. There are no wrong answers, so please use as many words as you can to explain what you see, think and wonder and we'll talk about your ideas when you return. This artwork by Chris Jordan, will surprise you!
Grade 5 is beginning a drawing intensive unit exploring observational drawing techniques. We're starting by focusing on building a drawing from careful looking and using general shapes to block things in before working on specific details. Students are enjoying working with a new medium, charcoal, and exploring how to create value with their smudgy fingers.
