One of the great things about participating in & attending the Mayor's Art Show is stealing...I mean learning from....other amazing art lessons(kind of like our blog world, but in person!). These were lessons that caught my eye as I walked through the the show. THESE ARE NOT PIECES CREATED BY MY STUDENTS.
This is a tissue paper & construction paper collage. It looks like a great way to have the student experience a Matisse "ish" work. This work was created on a 12 in. x18 in. piece of paper.
This mosaic piece was created with "fun foam". I have a lot of fun foam, but don't really use it much. I love this idea, and might give it a try. I believe they used a tacky glue(I don't think Elmer's glue would work).
This is a black glue line tempera painting. I know that it is anything way out of the ordinary, but for some reason...it really caught my eye. Love the colors(and it did look a bit more dramatic in person..some shading and such)
I'm totally in love with this piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a glue line on black construction paper with oil pastel. I don't usually have great success with the oil pastels and glue lines...I've had better luck with chalk pastels and glue line. Though..I've done this with younger students, and this was done by a 4th grader. Anyways...LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!!!
This was kind of an Eric Carle type project, but it was fetching in person!
This is a hodge podge of tissue paper, tempera paint, oil pastel! I LOVE IT! It makes me think of Chagall, Spanish art, Mexican art...a little bit of this and that.
Though this might look like M&M's & Skittles..its dry beans. I'm not sure how they colored the beens, but they are beautiful! Very sold color & shiney!!! I think this was 1st?
