The all school art show is going to use abstract as its theme this year. So we are starting to create some of those projects so the students can choose from several of their works.
This week's lesson is inspired by Carole Watanabe. She is a CA based artist that works in fibers and paint. I found her painting of a fish so beautiful & something that my students would get excited about. It also allows them to select colors and shapes that they feel are best for their work.
Students are using pencils, construction paper, and construction paper crayons. We will go into this work again next week using regular crayons to create the background.
