Artist Spotlight week 4

I’m so sad that we did’t get to have our art show this year! However, we are still going to celebrate our artists by having an artist spotlight. This is their artwork that was going to be showcased in the Evening on the Lawn art show. I’m so proud of how hard they worked this year. Listed below are the classes that are being spotlighted this week. If a student is not listed, they either didn’t include their name or it is not finished and still in their work crate at school.

Summertime!

Today’s activity is a how to draw lesson.  You will draw a self portrait of you wearing sunglasses.  (There’s a tutorial to help if you need assistance drawing a person.) Then, in the sunglass lenses, you will draw something you are looking forward to doing this summer.  🙂

How to draw 3d letters

Today’s activity involves taking 2d letters and making them look 3d.  There are several practice sheets included for you to print and practice.  Make sure to pay attention to the placement of lines when you go from a 2d block letter to a 3d letter.  Once you think you are a pro, try to write your name. 🙂

Art in the Kitchen

Today we’re bringing some art and creativity to the kitchen with making tie dye cookies.

You will need: 1/3c softened, unsalted butter; 1/4c sugar; 2/3c flour; food coloring.

Have an adult pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.  Use a hand mixer to beat the butter and sugar until fluffy; stir in flour.  Divide dough and add a drop or 2 of food coloring; mix into that portion of dough.  Add all colored dough back into big bowl and swirl colors of dough together.  Form into small balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Enjoy some yummy art!

 

Animal Drawings

Ever wonder what it’s like to be an animal?

The San Diego Zoo has a lot of live cams going right now so you can watch the animals in action.  It’s so cool to see what they are doing! If you’re feeling a little more like being underwater, the Georgia Aquarium has a live feed going too!

Choose a live feed to watch.  Draw a picture of what you observe while watching.  Remember to include all the details of the scene: the animals, any structures you see in their habitat, maybe it’s eating food, etc.

Send your pictures to either kristin.moulder@cobbk12.org or tag on twitter @KristinMoulder. Can’t wait to see what you draw! 🙂

Doodle Cube

Here’s another 2d to 3d activity- the doodle cube.  You draw different designs/patterns all over the flattened cube.  Then, you follow the directions on how to fold and glue to create a cube. 🙂  Here are some examples and resources to help you with your designs.

Have fun with it and enjoy making your 3d creation! 🙂

Spring Wreath

I found this super cute wreath activity that incorporates 2d and 3d art.  The wreath is the 2d element with flat flowers.  The butterflies are added on and their bent wings make it a 3d paper sculpture! 🙂 Make one of these beautiful spring wreaths and hang it up in your house.  Feel free to send me a pic of your paper sculptures when you are done. 🙂 kristin.moulder@cobbk12.org or tag on Twitter @KristinMoulder.

 

It’s a Mystery!

Mystery pics are always fun because you are surprised with what type of picture you have created in the end.  Today’s activity uses a hundreds chart and you get to choose from many mystery pictures.  It’s always fun to try and see what it comes out to be.  🙂

Here is my mystery picture that I tried.  I used the blank hundreds chart.  I went through and put a tiny letter to represent the color I was using and then colored it in. I made a fall tree!

Let’s see what you can do!
