Grade 4 started the year with directed drawing and celebrating Chinese New year with dragons! Gorgeous colours, and a fantastic background, including fireworks with oil pastels and a blue water colour over the top for effect. The red of the dragon really pops out! Students carefully followed the directions of the dragon with the help of Mrs Muccignat and the results are stunning as you can see!
This year, Leyla and Steph, our Art Captains for 2014, started a new program called, ‘Art Captains Pick of the Week’. Children at the school, could enter artwork from home or school to win a certificate and have their artwork displayed in the hallway in front of the art room door.
These portraits were made by the grade fours. They did two types of portraits. The first type of portrait is were you get a photo of half of your face and draw the other half of your face.
The other type of portrait is were you draw a self portrait of yourself and have sections of your face in different colours.
The Grade fours created this artwork. They used Dry pastels for the Bandicoot and background, material to sew together to make the Bandicoot and straw for the ground. Here are some great examples:
These god eyes were made by Grade fours. They used two sticks and wrapped wool in between the sticks.
These cute little spiders were made by grade fours. They made pom-pom’s then hot glued googley eyes and then poked piping cleaners in the middle for the spiders legs.
