Ludwig students have Art Class once a week for 35 minutes. Check back in frequently to see what students are working on!
5th Grade Collaborative Legacy Mural Each class painted a black canvas with neon paint in homage of Jen Stark. Students painted simple shapes and then painted colorful layers around each shape. To add rhythm and movement students painted patterns on top of the shapes.
Clay Cupcakes Previously in art, students were creating clay cupcakes and they used clay building techniques. The two clay building techniques learned were the coil pot and pinch pot. Wayne Thiebaud was the artist inspiration for this project and students participated in a discussion on his works. Craftsmanship was used throughout this lesson and students painted the cupcakes in an original way.
Materials: Air dry clay, clay tools, baggies, tempera paint, brushes, and varnish
Stark Paper Sculpture Previously in art, students were creating a drawing with geometric and/or organic shapes. These drawings were inspired by artist Jen Stark. A 3-D rendering of the drawings were created by layering construction paper and foam board.
Radial Prints Previously in art, students were printmaking using original designs. Designs were planned out on sketch paper after looking at art work with radial symmetry. The designs were drawn into foam board with a pen and printed with ink.
Expressive Hands Previously in art, students were creating an expressive multi-media work of art. An abstract painting was done in analogous colors showing many values of a color. Then, students were writing a quote on their painting that means something to them. Glued on top of the painting was a drawing of each students' hand with their name/word that defines them, as well as a variety of patterns on it.
Materials: Drawing paper, pencils, sharpie markers, scissors, glue, painting paper, tempera paint, brushes, water cups, paper towels, and metallic paint markers
