    Hello 2nd graders,

     

    I hope you had a wonderful week and got outside in the sun, what a brilliant week, right?

     

    This week in art I need you to get outside some more and make a fairy house!!

     

    What is a fairy house you ask??

     Fairy Houses are small structures for the fairies and woodland creatures. Ranging from simple to intricate (complex) ‘Fairy Mansions’.  

     

    Here are some examples of wonderful Fairy Houses I found on the internet.

    fairy house1

    This house is built against a fallen tree limb.

     

    fairy house2

    Check out the beautiful flowers that add so much color...

     

    fairy house 3

    Bark makes a great side wall on this house.....

     

    fh4

    Bark works well here too...

     

    O.K., now it's your turn....you need to....

     1) Go outside and collect wood, bark, sticks, leaves, moss, stones, flowers, pine cones, grass...anything you think you might need for your fairy house.

    fh5

    2) Find a spot to build your fairy house: against a tree, between tree roots, against a big rock... 

    fh6

    3) Think about the fairies or woodland creatures that will live in your house, what might they need....walls, roof, bed, walkway, garden....

     

    fh7

     

    4) Start building. 

     

    fh8

     

    Have a great week using your imagination and building an incredible home for a fairy or woodland creature.

  • 7th grade- soap carving

    Posted by Lisa Magnarelli on 5/13/2020 10:55:00 AM

    Hello 7th graders,

    I hope you are all well and healthy.

    I want to thank all of you who have sent in School's Out art work. Thank you tons, the art looks fantastic! If you are someone who has not sent in work please do so. We always need original art for School's Out and y'all, this 7th grade. is particular creative!!

    **Remember, you don't have to draw the cover this year, you can take a photo and overlay text, you can make a collage, you can make a digital collage. Y'all have so many options beyond drawing, so think about it, make it relevant to the island, make it eye catching and have fun doing it!

     

    On to the art of the day, SOAP CARVING....this is a fun one if I do say so myself!

     

    Soap carving is a great way to start carving and all you need is a bar of soap and some simple household items.

     

    Here is a picture of my second attempt...he first one was O.K., I just forgot to take a picture.

    I found it amazing how much detail I could get and how quickly the carving went.

    .fish1

    And this is the picture I was working from....

    fish drawing

     

     

    Before we get started take a look at some of these examples I found online....just to get you thinking

    ex1

     

    ex2

     

    ex3

     

    ex4

     

    The materials you will need for this project are an idea of what you are going to carve or a picture of what you are going to carve to work from, a bar or bars of soap, a butter knife, a spoon, a paperclip, and any other regular household tool you have in the kitchen area like a potato peeler, a wooden skewer, a pencil.....

     

    Below are two good videos that show someone carving soap so you have an idea what the process looks like.

    1) great video but speed it up x2

    2) carving an elephant

    Also here is a great link, Click here for link, from Tate Gallery in London detailing ,with pictures, how to carve with soap.

     

    Lets Begin....

     

    1) Sketch the image you want to carve on the soap. 

    2) Start carving away the corners of the soap first, slowly going around the bar cutting away the soap as you get closer to the image you drew.

    3) Use the paper clip, pencil, or skewer for the fine detail work and tight spots.

    **Remember, relax and have fun...and save the soap shavings for shower time!!

     

    Please send me pictures or your amazing creations, I am very excited to see what y'all make with your soap!!

    Be well and have a great weekend!
