4th and 5th Grade have been studying Art History and we recently looked at Egyptian Art. They had to make a drawing following the same strict rules of proportion that the Egyptians followed. Here are some of the 5th Graders finished products (the 4th Graders are still working on theirs).
1st grade has been studying the art of Henri Matisse. They learned that he turned to making pictures by “drawing with scissors” toward the end of his career when he was bed ridden and then in a wheelchair. We looked at Matisse’s picture “Vegetables” and then I asked them to make a picture of what they wish they could eat on Thanksgiving using only paper and glue…I didn’t even let them have pencils.
