    Today you will build a marble run from recyclables. Just look around the house, get super creative and have at it.

  • 6th grade-letters and graffiti

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 4/10/2020 2:00:00 AM

    Hello 6th graders

    I trust you got out in the sunshine earlier in the week and did you see the super moon??

    It is still magnificent so if you missed it check it out tonight!

     

    Before we get started on letters and graffiti, please check out the *EVERYBODY* tab on my homepage. This assignment is fun, funny and super creative. 

     

     On to letters and Graffiti....

    Peace, baby

     

    Graffiti is really an understanding of 1 point perspective. Once you have that foundation you can go crazy creative.

    If you missed it, two weeks ago, on march 25th, Y'all had a 1 point perspective review.  1 pt perspective review check it out before you do todays assignment.

    Today is a lesson on making 1 point perspective letters and there are three videos. You need this foundation of the basic 1 pt perspective letter and move on to graffiti, so watch and practice.

    Once you have a good understanding of 1 point perspective and how to draw letters, you can then bend them, stretch them and add your own style to them.

    The last video is just that; making those 1 point perspective letters into graffiti. 

    And here is a link to the website Graffiti Creator graffiti creator .

    The website is a great place to play around with style and color, then print it out or save to your desktop and make it by hand!

    I miss yall

    I'm not quite finish....but I'm getting there.

     

    O.K.. get going and have fun...send pictures!!

    Hello 1st graders,

     

    Firstly, just a reminder to check out the *EVERYBODY* page for a great all school art project. This week I am asking you to recreate artwork from museums using yourself, your family and stuff around the house. Be creative and have fun. Remember, there is no wrong way to do this.

    Second...send me pictures of your work!!! please:) 

     

    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!

  • 4th grade-Zentangle

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 4/9/2020 4:00:00 AM

    Hello 4th graders,

     

    Firstly, just a reminder to check out the *EVERYBODY* page for a great all school art project. This week I am asking you to recreate artwork from museums using yourself, your family and stuff around the house. Be creative and have fun. Remember, there is no wrong way to do this.

    Second...send me pictures of your work!!! please:) 

     

    On to the art class of the day.

     

    Y'all will be learning about and making Zentangles.

    "A Zentangle is a miniature abstract work of art created by a collection of patterns.

    It is typically done on a 3 ½” x 3 ½” paper “tile” using a pencil and a black pen. The small size allows for a work of art that can be completed in a relatively short period of time. The “zen” part of it is that it can be a very relaxing and meditative experience." -KinderArt

    The size of the artwork actually can be any size (they just refer to it by a slightly different name) and color can be added as well.

    Here are some “basics” to get you started…

    You can use any size paper you like, but I do think a square is a good idea.Use a black pen that has a fine tip if you have one, if now any black pen is great.

    1. Using a pencil, put a small dot in the each of the corners of your paper.
    2. Connect the dots with a line, not necessarily a straight one though.
    3. Using the pencil, sort of “scribble” in some lines, going this way and that, until you have created several spaces on the paper.
    4. Using your black pen, create a different pattern in each one of the spaces that you have drawn with your pencil.
    Zentangles. KinderArt.com.
     

    If you like, do some shading with a pencil.

    Putting two or more together in a grouping is fun too!  Here are three of my Zentangles, I played around with arranging them together.

    Here are some examples of patterns to get you started....

    O.K.., have fun, relax, make great art and I'll see you next week!!!
