5th Grade: Creepy Crawlies
Inspired by the Swedish Illustrator Rosalind Monks students for this unit focused on learning new materials while mastering some known materials such as scissors. Using gold scratchboard and a metal stylus students remade an image of an insect making sure to get detail and an enlarged etching. Using three values of black on an illustration of a Maine scene students painted in empty space to get the look of dark to medium to light. The results are quite beautiful.
4th Grade: Fourth Grade Can Swim!
For this unit students drew from observation, and learned how to blend and color layer Prisma Color colored pencils. Each fish was created on black railroad board to have an effect on vibrancy.
