5th Grade
Art Projects for April-May:

A Study of Matisse:  Students create an inside-outside composition based upon this Expressionist artist who created compositions that showed two views in one drawing. They combine the two views by using similar shapes and colors in both areas.  They color the composition in Complementary (opposite) colors like reds and greens, using mixed media technique, chalk, crayon and oil pastels.

Stained Glass: This project is a study of this Medieval Art style.  Students create a drawing that is fractured into different shapes within the forms to emulate the effect of glass shapes.  The forms are connected with black line colored with black markers.  The project is colored with blended crayon, to create the effect of glass in sunlight.l
