Art Smart – Creativity in the Fall Season

Posted 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.
