4th Grade
Art Projects for October:

An Animal Drawing:  This is a study of Realism.  Students select a reference photo of an animal and begin to draw it by analyzing all the components of the form that make the drawing look realistic.  They are instructed to draw in line technique to capture the textural effect of feathers or fur.  They complete their drawing by coloring their animal with blended colored pencils, carefully copying the exact colors of their animal photo.

A Fall Themed Line Drawing: This project again uses line, an Element of Art as the art technique.  Students select their object, a leaf, fruit or vegetable found in the Fall season.  They are instructed to use the Contour (line drawing) technique and draw their object onto fall colored construction paper.  The drawing is then colored with thick and thin colored markers.
