    Happy Friday, Y'all,

    I do hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. I miss all your faces and am excited to see you once again.

     

    There is a new tab on the art website, it is called the everybody tab. When you click on the everybody tab there will be an art project every student in the school can do.

    Check it out.

    This week is focused on an amazing artist named Andy Goldsworthy. He makes art outside, in the woods, in the streets, on the paths, from things he finds in nature.

    So get out there and make art like Andy and when you do, please email me a picture of what you have made!!!

    O.K.., check out the work for the week, send me pictures (lmagnarelli@mvyps.org) and have fun.

  • 3rd grade-1 point perspective

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 4/3/2020 3:00:00 AM

    Hello 3rd graders,

     

    How did drawing those geometric shapes in 3D go?? I'm sure you all did amazing work.

     

    Today we are going to learn about 1 point perspective.

    This is one of my favorite art skills. If you like to draw things like they look in the world, learning perspective is a big part of it.

    It is a set of ideas and rules that, once you get and understand, you can draw almost anything.

    Here is some reading (not much) so you get an idea of what perspective is and how it came to be.

     Renaissance artists experimented with ways to create the illusion of deep space on a flat surface. They figured out that in real life, parallel lines (for example, a road) appear to converge, or meet, as they recede into the horizon. Additionally, objects that are close appear to be larger and in better focus than those farther away. By applying these concepts to their canvases, artists could mimic the way we see the world. This mathematical system of using lines to create realistic-looking depth is called linear perspective.

     

    Here are two great videos teaching you how to use 1 point perspective. This is big kid stuff so be patient, watch the video as many times as you need and have fun.

  • 6th grade - 2 point perspective

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 4/3/2020 2:00:00 AM

    Hello 6th graders.

    I hope 1 point perspective went well. It is not an easy concept but once you understand 1 point perspective, two point perspective may come faster.

    Like one point perspective, we will start with a video showing you how to draw a cube in two point perspective. Then there will be two more videos showing you how to draw a house and a room. 

    In one point perspective you are looking at the front of the cube, in two point perspective you are looking at the corner of the cube........here we go.

     

    What you need: Paper, Pencil, Eraser, Ruler

    Vocabulary: Horizon Line, Vanishing Point, Parallel

    Happy Wednesday everyone,

     

    I hope you are all well today.

     

    Further down on this page is an art project for your class but i just wanted to tell you about a new idea I had.

    There is a new tab on the art homepage. It is called *EVERYBODY*. On this tab there will be an art project for everybody in the school, check it out.

    This week the *everybody* page is about one of my favorite artists, Andy Goldsworthy. He is a British artist who only works with nature, so take a look, get outside and make some art.

     

    Now back to Wednesdays classes....

  • 2nd grade-art from junk

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 4/1/2020 5:00:00 AM

    Hello 2nd graders,

     

    Today we will be making sculpture from junk or recyclables. Whatever you have around the house is perfect ( NO GLASS PLEASE), boxes, toilet paper rolls, lids from bottles and jars...whatever.

     

    You can attach stuff with tape, string, glue or a glue gun if you have one ( have an adult help you with a glue gun) or cutting the pieces and fitting them together. I bet there are 100 ways for things to stay together, use your imagination.

     

    Today you can make whatever you want, representational art ( art that looks like something in the real world)robot a robot

    rocket

    a rocket

     

    or abstract art ( art that does not look like something in the real world but instead use shapes, colors and texture).

    cardboard abstract art

    see how they cut the cardboard and slid twp pieces together to have it stay stable?

     

    There is no wrong way to do this, just look in the recycle bin, use your imagination and have fun!!!

     

    Please send me pictures of your artwork!!

    lmagnarelli@mvyps.org

     

    I miss you all, see you next week!
