3rd Gr. 3D Abstract Artworks

3D Abstract Artworks
3rd grade wondered what 3D forms they could make out of paper and they  created movement in these fun abstract artworks! Students thought flexibly, were very creative, and did a lot of problem solving to make shapes become forms and stand up to be 3D.  

Students Loved making these!

So much fun!  Click on the "3rd Grade Art" tab to see more of these awesome artworks.

3rd Gr. Abstract Collages

Abstract Collages
3rd graders learned about the Elements of Art: Line, Pattern, and Color and used them in their abstract artworks.  They also learned about parallel lines, which are lines that never touch or intersect and are always the same distance apart, and some students chose to use them in their artworks!

I Love these!  Awesome job 3rd graders.  Click on the "3rd Grade Art" tab to see more awesome Abstract Collages.

Abstract Paintings using Line, Color, Shape, and Pattern
2nd graders learned about the Elements of Art: Line, Shape, and Color, along with the Principle of Art: Pattern. They used Line, Color, and Pattern in their abstract paintings.  Then they cut apart their painting and rearranged the Shapes to create more lines with the black of the paper behind it!

Man, these are beautiful!  Click on the "2nd Grade Art" tab to see more of these Awesome artworks!

Task Party!

Task Party!
On the first day of art class, students had a Task Party where they each got a different task that they had to do in order to create their art portfolio. The tasks varied from "combine two animals into a new hybrid animal" to acting and doing performance art for their peers.  Students enjoyed creating and innovating, thinking flexibly, and persevering to complete their creative tasks.

Students really enjoyed the Task Party and I found it worked very well to accommodate the different speeds at which students work.  Some students completed one task in the time others completed three.  We will definitely have another Task Party this year!
