What a fun and busy year it has been in LP art, here is a look at our last couple of weeks in the art room.
Crazy Faces: Looking at Asymmetry
R2 Students looked at all facial features, face shape, eyes, nose, mouth, ears and hair. Then we looked at how these can match.....or not!
Then people designed their own very crazy faces....
Then we began to create in collage, shaping the face and adding the eyes.
Look at the detail we used!
People practiced counting to 20 to make sure stuff sticks!
Looks at our faces!
These are all probably at home with you right now!
See you next year in Grade One everyone!
Grade One Creative Beings
Islamic Tiles: Rotational printing
Once again we looked at the tile decorations on the outside of these amazing mosques and we collected some of the motifs and shapes that we had noticed:
These were some of the main shapes that we found:
As you can see the next stage was to take the motifs and craft those into a small square shape using the same methodology that we had found on the islamic tiles. A central shape and some 1/2 shapes at the side.
This design was then carved into our small foam board tile
Ready for us to apply the colour using paint
Then after we applied the paint, we placed the tile upside-down strategically on the paper pointing at the magic dot......
Ask your children how they knew how to place their tile.
Look what happens when the tile is printed more than once.....
What a marvellous job the first graders did.........see you all in Grade Two folks!!!
