The fall is a perfect time of year to explore organic shape and form. This fall we have a wide range of fun and educational art projects happening at Hedke.
Kindergarten is making pop-up pumpkin patches. They are using organic shape, warm colors, and line to create natural looking pumpkin patches that take 2D shapes to make 3D sculptures.
K - 2 are also exploring organic shape through the work of Pablo Picasso. His abstract portraits are a great inspiration for creative witches and frankensteins.
3rd grade is loving the creation of organic form tree sculptures and pumpkin patches. They are using warm colors, actual textures, and more. Unfortunately, these are a must see in person: the pictures really don't do them justice.
4th grade is getting extremely creative with haunted house silhouettes.
4th and 5th grades are all making organic jack-o-lanterns out of clay.
5th graders are also practicing form through shading partial pumpkin drawings with warm color value techniques.
More pictures will be posted soon.
