Art From Around the World

May 02, 2017

Following the “Around the World” theme for the 2016-2017 school year, the Fine Arts classes have been very busy learning about different types of artwork pertaining to each continent!  Each student completed a scrapbook with their own art.  The following is a description of the artwork from each continent.

Europe- We had a lesson on cave drawings, then the students used charcoal pencils to draw an animal of their choice on a piece of crumpled construction paper, which resembles the roughness of the wall of a cave.

Africa- We learned about Egyptian drawings and each student wrote their name using hieroglyphics.

Asia- The students created branches of Japanese Cherry Blossom trees, using the bottom of a 12 oz. soft drink bottle as a stamp for the petals.

Australia- We studied aboriginal dot art, then created dot paintings using a wide variety of colors.

South America- The parrot is one of the most common birds in South America. The students created parrots from magazine clippings to resemble a mosaic or collage.

Antarctica- What lives in Antarctica??? PENGUINS!  We followed step-by-step instructions on the Smart Board to learn how to draw an Emperor Penguin.

North America- We learned about Georgia O’Keeffe and what kind of paintings she liked to create.  After seeing an example of many of her paintings, each student painted a water color flower.  Then for our last project, everyone was able to use their imaginations to paint their own abstract.

 

This project was a lot of fun, and it was awesome to see the imagination and creativity of all of our students.  Please take time to look through the pictures to see examples of the different artwork!
