Students study the woman artist ‘Georgia O’Keeffe’. They bring in objects that are special to them and draw them, closely considering their own compositions as they work.
Students learn about compositional elements as they create a magical setting that could host fairy tales.
Students learn about visual poetry, create a poem about a monster helper, draw a self-portrait, and rearrange their poems in a visual way with the self-portrait.
Students learn about constellations across many different cultures and create their own constellation and write their own origin story.
Student artists create a landscape of somewhere they have always wanted to see and visit (older students use ‘Google Maps’ to virtually visit, younger students create a collaged book of ideas). They then learn about how color can change the ‘mood’ of a painting.
Students learn about hybrid creatures in mythology, then create their own.
