4th Grade
Art Projects for February - March:

A Decorative Art Unit:  

A)  Design a Mask:
​​​​ Students are instructed to create a decorative Mask.  They learn the technique of symmetry, the same on both sides, by drawing a mask design, folding it in half and cutting out the form on colored construction paper.  The mask is completed by covering the entire surface with decorative patterns in the style of African and Aboriginal art.  The mask is completed by coloring with colored markers.

B)  A Decorative Art Folder:  Students design the front of their art folder using the technique of the mask project.  The folder must include their name and grade.  100% of the folder surface is covered with pattern, colored with several markers.

Hearts and Roses:  students form a symmetrical two colored heart shape.  They decorate the heart with realistically drawn roses, stem and leaves.  The rose drawing is colored with blended oil pastels using Valentine colors.

An Irish Harp:  Students draw a large harp shape.  They decorate the frame of the harp with Celtic Knot Art from reference material.  The harp is colored with mixed media, crayons, marker outline and colored pencils in a monochromatic (green) color combination.m
