Today we worked a little science into our art class! We talked about what makes a habitat a home. The Picassos were asked to choose an animal to research so this video is our jumping off point for our discussion.
Our task today is simply to choose a habitat and really focus on what it looks like and then sketch a scene from that habitat. The art concepts highlighted today are again perspective... looking at the foreground, middle ground and background of our piece. Also paying attention to scale and placement. The Picassos are also going to get to stretch their creative muscles as they come up with their compositions all on their own... no sample piece to look at today... only their understanding of what will be found in their habitat.
This lesson will take my Picassos a few sessions but it promises to be extremely fun in the best way possible! We'll all be learning as we create our beautiful pieces of art.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
