5th Grade Art with Mrs. Brown

5th Grade Art with Mrs. Brown
Fifth graders learned about Vikings in their social studies class. They learned that Viking were not just the fierce warriors that people always assume they to be. Many Vikings were also very experienced farmers, fishermen, ironworkers, traders, and writers. But, for fun we decided to draw Vikings the way that they have been portrayed in the myths and legends! Students learned about pen and ink techniques, like hatching, cross-hatching, and stippling and they applied these techniques to their drawings.

Zilker Elementary Art Class Fifth graders are studying one point perspective and creating an interior space for an art gallery. We used converging lines, overlapping, and size to help create the illusion of depth in our two dimensional drawings. We are also using color and detail to help with perspective. The paintings that are closer appear to have darker, richer colors and more sharp detail, while the artworks on the back wall have fewer details and appear to be lighter and duller in color.

Here I am going to share a bit more how I am going to work to incorporate some Common Core into this unit, as well as more details of what I hope to accomplish with this unit. Now, I know some of you may think that this project I want them to do is a little elementary, and to an extent I agree, but let me explain why I am starting off a little "easy". I have not had this group of students since 6th grade, which was my 1st year of teaching. When I taught them, I did not really touch on the elements and principles very much. Only recently, as I have gotten a good grasp on how the school year goes, have I really focused my elementary curriculum on incorporating those important art ideas.

GMG Art 7th grade art students are creating Pop Art drawings focusing on the style of artist, Roy Lichtenstein. We started by taking digital images of each student and making a graphite transfer. Since my 7th grade art class is required by all 7th graders, I find that when they can start with a lesson that always has positive results they are more willing to try harder lessons.
