Observational Drawings



Let's play, Guess What's In The Bucket?



If you guessed frogs, you were correct! Good for you!



Today in class we drew animals from observation. We set up 5 stations and each station had a different life form to draw.



There were bugs...



..and shells...



.. and leaves..



and turtles.



The artists had two, five minute sessions.. the first to create a contour line drawing, the second to create a blind contour line drawing.



After the 2 sessions, the artists moved to the next station.



to draw some more.

Day One Project



Opposites using plastic bags

In teams students had one class period to create a work of art using non-traditional materials. Their artwork had to represent a topic that they were given.




Broken using cereal and popcorn

How they created the art, what they created and where they created it was totally up to their group to decide.


The students were allowed to use any other art materials in the room to help with their project but the main focus of the artwork had to be on the non-traditional materials.

The materials were: plastic bags, cups, newspaper, cereal, post it notes or scantrons

The topics were: broken, grow, season, opposites, caged and shocking
