Our fifth grade artists learned about Zentangles - a contemporary art form that explores the use of pattern, line, shape and symbols. Students had the choice to create their final composition on white drawing paper or scratchboard. Great job, artists!
Our 7th grade students studied the art of Optical Illusions created by artists Victor Vasarely and Bridget Riley. Students used the elements and principles of design to manipulate lines and shapes to create optical illusions of movement on a flat surface. Using their knowledge of Op Art, students created a three-dimensional cube using various geometric Op Art designs.
Our 6th grade students created their own diamond cut drawings. Students discussed and dissected a diamond using mathematical terms (symmetry – horizontal, vertical, radial, shapes, pattern, balance, etc.). After learning that symmetry is directly related to a diamonds worth, we set to create our own diamond drawings focusing on value and reflection.
