Van Gogh Museum - Loving Vincent. Candice ashment art: *Reduce *Reuse *Recycle - NEWSPAPER Abe {tutorial} During the month of April, EARTH MONTH (yay), I will "attempt" to post all of my current repurposed and recycled art projects. I'm a big fan of using repurposed items in my art projects and in daily life as well. What a great month of learning and getting into good habits! Newspaper Abe This has been one of my most simple, collaborative, kid art murals made with elementary kids, but for all ages! I love the fact that we used the portrait of Honest Abraham Lincoln (one of my favorite presidents), repurposed newspapers, crayons, a permanent marker, and of course... almost 80 1st graders!

And... you can make your own newspaper art in a smaller form with your preferred portrait/s! (We actually completed this near Presidents' Day, but this is my life. Here's my quick tutorial: (measure, cut, screw, spackle, sand, clean, gesso) Materials for Wood Canvas: Materials for Newspaper Abe: transparency sheet (and a projector)newspaperspermanent markercrayonsMod Podgeplastic wrap Make a funny face! Reduce. Cherry Blossom Art from a Recycled Soda Bottle. Pink blossoms will soon appear on trees, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival starts on March 20. In 1912 the city of Tokyo, Japan, gave Washington, D.C., a beautiful gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees.

This year celebrates the 100th anniversary of that gift. Make cherry blossom artwork with a recycled 2-liter soda bottle as a stamp! Here are the detailed instructions. Start by using dark paint to paint a branch on poster board. Branches are easy to paint. I cut this piece of poster board in half lengthwise because I want it to look more like an art panel than a poster. Once the branch is painted, let it dry before continuing with the stamping. Now let’s do the stamping. The bottom of 2-liter soda bottle has five points like the five petals of a cherry blossom. Press the plastic bottle on the poster board, then lift up.

Red Bird | KIDS & GLITTER. Imagine walking in a distant, winter dried forest. Suddenly a flash of color catches your eye and as you turn to see what it is, you see a cardinal light on a bare bush. The beauty of the red bird, in contrast to the stark surroundings, burns the image into your memory. In this project, “Red Bird,” we’ll attempt to recreate the moment.

The Calvert Canvas: Adventures in Middle School Art!: Layered Leaf Printing. In this project, students combined and layered painting and printing techniques using fall leaves as the subject. The focus of the project was creating a well balanced composition using an analogous color scheme (colors that are adjacent to one another on the color wheel). Students used the following techniques in order to create their artworks: Step One: Rubbing: A throwback to childhood crayon fun, students placed a leaf under their paper and used crayon to firmly rub over the leaf, causing the veins and details of the leaves to appear. Students repeated the procedure to fill their page with overlapping leaves of different sizes, shapes and colors. Leaf-Mask Stenciling: Leaves were placed on the previously rubbed paper smooth side down. Students wet the paper about an inch away from the leaf with clean water and then loaded their brush with watercolor paint.

Cassie Stephens: In the Art Room: Leaf Relief. Hey guys! This post has been very popular...if you are interested in other leaf related projects, be sure to look at this Leaf Printing post and my Leaf Press Project. Thanks! While second grade was completing that project, I was working with my third graders on these Leaf Reliefs. It's a very spring/summer kind of project, so I thought I'd share it with you. I like that I can talk about all of the elements of art when looking at something as simple as a leaf: the shape of the leaf; the lines and texture of the veins; the varying colors of each leaf; the cylinder form of the tree that the leaf came from.

Once that was complete, we took our boards, a large drop cloth and some cheapo spray paint outside. Using the softest of steel wool, the kids burnished their leaf reliefs. For the background, I have tried a variety of things. Once paintings and reliefs were complete, I hot glued the metal work onto the canvas. The works of art were a real show stopper once hung in the hall as a group. The Tuesday 12: 12 Amazing Art Projects Your Students Will Love! - Teaching Rocks!

You cannot govern the creative impulse, all you can do is eliminate obstacles and smooth the way for it. -Kimon Nicoliades Providing this opportunity for children, “smoothing the way,” is what art integration is all about. Teachers need simply to provide students with creative opportunities and “eliminate obstacles” in order to witness the creativity of their students.

Integrating art in the classroom in connection with our modern world makes for relevant, meaningful and engaging experiences for children in their learning. As soon as you have student engagement the rest is a breeze! I’m sure by now you’ve heard the TED talk by Sir. One of the famous things Ken states is that we “…teach creativity out of children.” After all, it takes bravery to be wrong.

It is our job as educators to keep our students from “growing up” when it comes to creative thinking and problem solving. These two art integration lessons do all of these things. 1. 2.

Two recent national news articles about art provide a perfect window into why Art in Action is so passionate about bringing visual arts experiences to students.

The first involves Pablo Picasso. Our second and fourth grade students study works by Picasso and are adept at analyzing both the formal and narrative elements in his paintings. We provide art materials for the students to use as part of the programs at their school, but can't provide infrared technology that was used to uncover a hidden painting underneath Picasso's painting The Blue Room. According to this CNN article, experts at the Phillips Collection found that under his painting, Picasso had done an earlier portrait of a bearded man in a completely different style than the final painting. And that's a key skill that a program like Art in Action can give to a student...the ability to test ideas, to experiment with materials and to develop the creative process at their own speed.

It's hard to believe that one of the top tools for learning as recognized by the Center for Learning &Performance Technologies is blocked in many schools today.

Malala Fan Art Is A Thing, And It’s Beautiful. By Danica Davidson 7/15/2015 We know Malala Yousafzai as an education activist, a Nobel Prize winner and a feminist icon, but it turns out she’s also an inspiration for artists. The Malala Fund’s Instagram page recently shared a teen’s classroom drawing of Malala as Rosie the Riveter, an icon of working women in World War II. 16-year-old Morgan Ciocca was told to do an art piece that was both about diversity and inclusion, and she found Malala as her Muse, telling FOXK4C, “Honestly, one of my top priorities in life is to empower women and let women know they can do anything.”

Her good friend Maddi McMaster shared the image online, where it caught Malala’s attention, and she sharedon Instagram, writing, “Regram from @maddibraps: “Extremists have shown what frightens them the most: A girl with a book.” – Malala. Thanks for being an awesome, creative supporter, Maddi! #loveoursupporters #malalaquote”. This isn’t the first time Malala’s been put in art, though. Embedded from 4 Seasons Button Tree Wall Art. Lake and Hartville Elementary Art: 5th Grade ABSTRACT STELLA SCULPTURES. Artists enjoyed exploring the work of American, abstract artist, Frank Stella. His work transpired over years of building his shapes, and then painting them, cut, tangled, & mangled and most of them, monumental in size, for all to enjoy.

Today, Stella works in his huge studio in upstate New York at the age of 77. The artist says, “A sculpture is just a painting, cut apart and stood up somewhere.” After viewing many of Stella’s work on line, students marveled at his ability to paint shapes with lines, patterns and designs that seem to move and constantly interact and revolve around each other. Using tempera paints, we created an abstract style painting to mimic some of Stella’s ideals and concerns with motion and movement. Ohio Standards for Art Content: Perceiving /Knowing (1PE): After exploration and production of abstract art, the student understands that the context of an art object has an effect on how that object is perceived.

In 125 years, millions of people have looked at this painting. No one really saw it until now. I'm not easily impressed, OK? I know Van Gogh was a genius. If the point of this were "Van Gogh was a mad genius," I would not be sharing this with you. But I found this and I thought, "Oh, what a vaguely interesting thing. " And then I got to the part about the Hubble Space Telescope, and, let me tell you: Mind. Blown. We've got the set up here, but you have to watch the video for the full effect.

Get this. Van Gogh was a pretty cool artist (duh), but as it turns out... *pretty much. Here's the story... While Van Gogh was in an asylum in France (after he mutilated his ear during a psychotic episode *)... Click image to Zoom ...he was able to capture one of science's most elusive concepts: Although it's hard to understand with math (like, REALLY HARD), it turns out that art makes it easy to depict how it LOOKS. So what is turbulence? It looks like this: See? Thing is, scientists are pretty much *just* starting to figure this stuff out. But did other artists depict TURBULENCE the way Van Gogh did?
