It is not the first time I am posting block printing but the results are always too special and unique for me to easily avoid another post. Therefore I will not talk and let photos speak for themselves.
Before starting to work on our clay relief project, a little challenging task of studying and drawing the hands.
Talking about children’s rights in a technique of a collage caused a need to talk about nudity in art since we are using many art magazines that are so cracking funny.
Collages turned out so meaningful as well.
This is an easy printing technique to use in a classroom. Rolling the paint on a plastic foil, placing it paint down on a printing paper and drawing with a sharp item on the back side of the foil, students will get one time results.
In our PYP Unit “Role models” Grade 2 discussed Joan Miró. We broke his colours down to basics, black and white and his shapes to little potatos that are sometimes overlapping opening possibilities for the third shape and a new colour. We added lots of soft lines.
While creating our poetry work for the March Madness call, we looked into the work of artist Tom Phillips, some pointillist painters and the movement itself. In addition we are working on a poem build out of words written in the page of a book so it is coincidental sort of writing. It is quite interesting and the whole process of art is left to the children. Nice, open, free project.
In our history PYP Unit students learned about Berlin wall. In art, our focus was a bit broader and we spoke about divisions and separations in general. We printed our linocuts in negative and positive.
I love still lifes so much. We just had to try it. Surely beautiful and raw results. I’d perhaps add one or two colours next time. And some text.
In our pyp unit “market places”, we are focusing on pop art and mass production. We printed with stencils. It was so busy I did not manage to get any photos done in the end but we were happy with the results.
