Who doesn’t remember how difficult it was to learn the elements from the Periodic Table and match them to their symbol? Well, our Bateman 8th graders learned them in a fun and unique way. Each student created their own personalized T-shirt with a phrase composed of the element symbols. The phrase was something meaningful to the student that created it. Although the project was part of science class , the finishing touches were made in art class, putting the “A” in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Math).
Art Club students created their very own personalized t-shirt using sharpie tie-dye, handmade stencils and spray paint.
Kindergarten through 8th grade students participated in a collaborative art project to help brighten the hallways of Bateman School! We used Keith Haring's figures as inspiration for this piece. Students traced other students' bodies in different positions on colored paper. Afterward, their figures were outlined with black paint, cut out and then hung on the walls in various positions.
Students first learned about Op Art; the twentieth century art movement and style in which artists sought to create an impression of movement on the picture surface by means of optical illusion. Fourth Grade students then created their own optical illusions using vertical and curved lines. To create the illusion of form, students used a shading technique to give a range of value to each shape.
For the second unit, the 4th and 5th grade students created their own textured landscape using Zentangles on scratchboard.
