Art Smart – Creativity in the Fall SeasonPosted on November 2, 2016
Madison students used their Art Smart moments to create fine fall works of art now on display in the student gallery.
- Kindergarten friends created a pumpkin patch utilizing the printmaking skills of Albrecht Durer.
- Grade one students explored Georges-Pierre Seurat’s concept of pointillism to create solid space of color, fall leaves, using dots of two or more colors in an area.
- Super second graders worked magic with magazine photos and clippings to create their own masterpiece using the Romare Bearden concept of collage. Collage seems easy; placing and arranging layers of paper, paint and subjects on a piece of paper, but it can be a hard concept to grasp. They did a super job.
- Friends in grade three focused on a fall leaf project following techniques from Andy Warhol who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art.
- Pablo Picasso was one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, as well as the co-creator of Cubism. Students in grade four enjoyed this abstract style when creating witches.
- Our fifth graders learned some fabulous 3D drawing tips to make their pumpkins projects jump off the page.
