5th Grade: Assemblages
For this unit students were inspired by the Assemblages of Joseph Cornell and Robert Rauschenberg. With a ruler students measured five sections on a piece of paper then in each section drew a different object making sure to crop on at least three sides. Students used pen to create cross hatching shading, afterwards they used watercolor to paint four values in the backgrounds. Students then used rulers to create armatures out of poster paper to assemble their work on an Abstract painted background at different heights.
Vocabulary Learned: Assemblages, 2D vs 3D, observational drawing, hatching & cross hatching, shading technique, Value, cropping, armatures, levels & heights, Abstract art, line work, Joseph Cornell, Robert Rauschenberg.
Materials Used: 8'x9' piece of paper, pencil, various objects, rulers, pen, watercolor, scissors, hot glue guns, black & white tempera paint, cardboard.
