Last week, we started on our "We heART art" unit. Yeah, I know it's cheesy, but the kiddos love it. We discussed Jim Dine and Romero Britto. They were all shocked to know they are both still alive. In almost every class they were like, "Are they still alive, Mrs. Jackson?" When I answered yes, there was a collective "That's cool! Most of the artists we study are dead!" I guess I won't continue to go in any kind of order... time to mix it up a bit! Anyway, these are done on some mat board that I found in my closet. I actually found a lot of stuff when I cleaned that out! They are about 4"x4", the perfect size for a one day lesson. I really want to keep these and use them for the art show. Some classes used watercolors, some tempera. I think they are great... I let them choose if they wanted to use a template or draw the heart themselves. These are from 2 classes (4th grade) that were based on Jim Dine-
I hope you all enjoy the rest of this lovey-dovey kind of week!
