4th Grade
Art Projects for May-June:

Tesselations: 
This project is a study of the Swiss artist, M.C.Escher.  Students are instructed to alter a 4 inch square by cutting out 2 sides and sliding the pieces unto the opposite side of the form.  They then create a "tile" which fits into each other like a puzzle piece.  The composition is colored with mixed media technique, colored pencil, crayon and marker outlines.

Cakes/Food:  This project teaches students how to correctly draw food shapes.  They study the drawings of the American Modern artists, Wayne Thiebald and Janet Fish, who use different foods as their subject matter.  They crate their own composition and color it with blended colored pencils.
