The David Lubin Art Studio: 6th grade

Great way to use up the end of the year scraps and bits plus they looked great too! Using patterns of toucans and parrots, students traced and cut out their own tropical bird. This cardboard base was the foundation for a collage project using a variety of scrap papers such as wall paper, painted paper, foil papers, specialty prints and construction paper. This projects connects directly to 6th grade world culture standards and builds on their 5th grade Audubon bird project. Each student is encouraged to select colors and designs that appeal to them- they can pursue a more realistic color palette (photos of the birds are on display) or chose a more personally imaginative approach.Using patterns of toucans and parrots, students traced and cut out their own tropical bird. Art Room 104: Next Up in 4th Grade...a Portrait Unit! Alright, it has to be said that drawing people/portraits is not one of my strong suits.

Art Room 104: Next Up in 4th Grade...a Portrait Unit!

It's not something I've ever really enjoyed doing, especially in college! But, I decided to stretch my limits and do a portrait unit with my 4th graders. It fits right in with my theme of drawing from real life so here is what the plan is. I took the first day to go through the proportions of the face. No, I don't expect the students to remember everything about the proportions, but I had hoped that what they would take away is that they eyes fall half way down the head, your head is 5 eye lengths across, and the ears and nose are the same length. For our first project, we are doing pop art self-portraits in the style of Roy Lichtenstein. Here's my example! The self-portrait in my power point is one I found through a Google search. Originally, I was going to have the kids use Q-tips to add the dots, but I think I like the Sharpie marker better.

Students used his same techniques of primary colors, comic book subject matter, text, thick black outlines, and BEN DAY DOTS to create an eye catching comic book style self-portrait! The students created a two-dimensional work that demonstrates awareness of space and composition by filling the page with their self-portrait and text bubble. Students identified relationships between selected art elements and principles by using only the PRIMARY colors and a PATTERNED background. Craig Redman » Portraits.

Contour Self-Portraits - Fifth Grade

To warm up, they completed two drawing exercises where they drew their hand using contour lines. The first time, they couldn't look at the paper when they drew; they could only concentrate and follow the lines on their hands with their eyes (Blind Contour Drawing). The second time, they could look at the paper sometimes, but when they did, their pencil had to be frozen (Modified Contour Drawing). Also check out: Miro in Ink. This is a project that I have done a couple of times with my Year 1's and 2's.

Miro in Ink

I love that it is simple enough for every child to be able to complete it successfully, but also provides opportunities for them to add their own style and details. We start by playing a couple of rounds of 'Roll A Miro' - there are a few versions of this game out there and mine if definitely not the first! This is the link to my version - feel free to use it! Roll A Miro Game This is a great way to introduce the work of Miro and the types of lines, patterns and symbols that he uses.

The students then create their own Miro inspired 'creature' - I ask them to draw nice and large onto A3 paper and to include some of the shapes into the background. 5/6 art ideas / Portrait ideas for older kids.
