The Great Wave Art Lesson Plan & Video Inspired by the book The Great Wave: A Children’s Book Inspired by Hokusai by Véronique Massenot and Bruno Pilorget and the painting The Great Wave off Kanazawa by Katsushika Hokusai, my fourth grade kids created the most beautiful paintings. I was hesitant to create an art lesson inspired by Hokusai’s The Great Wave. As a girl who loves Matisse and Van Gogh, Hokusai’s colors are rather bland and subdued. It wasn’t until I picked up Massenot’s picture book that lead me down a rabbit hole of Japanese art and wood cuttings. In the end, I wanted this project to inject color theory and personality. Onto the art project… What You’ll Need: 12″ x 18″ white drawing paperBlack oil pastel, pencils or your choice of mediums. Drawing the Great Wave This drawing is broken up into three sections: Foreground (first two waves)Middle Ground (main wave)Background (horizon line and Mt. We started by looking at a poster of Hokusai’s Great Wave and broke down the painting into the three sections.

Behavior Doctor Ohinewai School Art: Term 2 WEAVING ToWe are going to be doing a lot of different kinds of weaving this term. We will look at the history of weaving, and different weaving traditions of other cultures.Today I worked with Room 5 and Room 1 with the basic over and under paper weaving. Room 5 are so clever that were able to get this idea very quickly and be creative by putting a spin on the task of the day. Some cut zig zag rows, or curvy strips, or thick/thin... Some choose their colours carefully, while others decided to use random colours. Wow, I have been learning a lot about weaving in different cultures. More experiments, on a cardboard loom...Room 5... Room 1... Room 2 pre-plans and makes new designs...... Week 4, Room 4...Wooohooo now we're on to weaving Harakeke. For Matariki, we had a go in Room 4 and 5 at how to make paper stars. also, a woven star to make from paper or flax or anything! In Room we did some 7 sisters drawings, and decorated them with some colourful paper folding.
