Grade 6 Paper Manipulation Hats

Let the fun begin!

Welcome to the art class for 2014. We have begun a colossal project integrating technology class, art class and drama class. In art we are adding paper manipulations in green to shop bought hats. The students have looked and labeled the different paper manipulations on hats and masks found on the net and we are now at the point where they design their own. Next week we are beginning to stick the actual paper onto the hats. So watch this space.

The grade 6’s are rearing to go!












The grade 6’s started the year by revising the 7 Art Elements and doing an exercise breaking 3D objects and 2D paintings down into these elements and describing what they observed.

Here after though they began a 2D monochromatic mixed media art work.  The theme was a figure in an environment.  So we made people in water all in blues.  I allowed them to use white and grey and black and used the excuse that they were simply shades for tonal work and not colours in themselves.

Some very lovely pictures emerged and some very create ones where the person could hardly be seen.

I focused on the use of shadow on the figures body which most really struggled with.  Getting the learners to use as many different blues as possible was not quite such hard work.

We looked at how the clothes and hair would change in the watery environment – this they struggled to show as well.

We used powder paint, oil pastels, water-colour and aqua-pencil crayons and the learners own normal pencil crayons.

I am glad for the pictures which worked out well.  It was all in all a very challenging project.
