We will learn about form and how to create a 3-D work of art. Students will have their choice of what
cartoon character, object, etc. they would like to create, but it should have at least 4 appendages. Once the armature is
built we will use the
paper mache process to strengthen the form.
Students will be required to layer at least 4 layers of
mache. They will use tissue paper to add
color and detail to their piñata.
Where Students Should Be: Students will need to bring in a picture of the
character they want to work from and items to
build armature such as, paper
towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, 2 liter bottles, water or
Gatorade bottles cereal
boxes, etc. Anything they can think of that may help them
construct their form.
Students should be working on the color (finishing layer).

Now that students are familiar with mixing paint and the color wheel, we
will be creating a tropical bird composition.
class we will practice drawing different tropical birds by breaking
them down into simple shapes so everyone can feel
successful with their
drawings. Students will then paint
composition using ALL the colors on the color wheel. Their goal
will be to paint neatly and be
creative with color choices and
at least 1 blend of analogous colors.
Where Students Should Be: Finished.
We will be learning the basic color wheel (primary, secondary, and
tertiary) color schemes. We will discuss
(colors directly across from each other on the color wheel)
colors, analogous (3 colors next to each other on the color
wheel) colors and
monochromatic (shades and tints of one color) color schemes.
Students will create a 12 sectioned color wheel with each section showing
the color, the shade and the tint of each color.
This project is to introduce students to color, mixing paint, and
practicing painting neatly.

Students will be creating a radial design using their first names. Once they have their name created they will
paper to replicate the design in a radial pattern. We will then use markers to color in the
design. The goal when coloring
is to no
longer look at the design as a name and a background but instead to look at the
positive and negative shapes all as
Where Students Should Be: finished.
Students will work together to create a collage with their table members. This is the only group project that I assign throughout the semester. Their goal is to create a story out of ripped/cut magazines. Story can take place where ever their imagination takes them (cityscape, garden, outer space, underwater, snow scene etc). As a group they will come up with the story they want to tell, where it takes place and who the characters are. They will then draw out a few different sketches. After they are organized they will begin cutting out colors and images in magazines to create their story. They will need to emphasize their 1st names and period # in the color of their table.
If you have any extra magazines that you are willing to donate, please send them in with your child!! Thank you!
