,K-2 have learned all about Vincent Van Gogh! Many had recognized his art prior to the lesson, but never knew where it came from. The artists explored the work of Van Gogh: his techniques, his style, and his emotions. After learning all about Van Gogh, the students created their own starry starry cities, putting a modern twist on a well loved classic, using shape, line, and texture.
3rd grade worked on cities as well, but these cities really POPPED. Using form the students drew three-dimensional skyscrapers. They used shading values to make each building even more three dimensional. After that we created a background and glued cutout buildings on top using foam poppers. The outcome is really eye popping!
