What Does Art Mean To You?

Georgetown 5th graders were challenged to think about what art really means to them.  They brainstormed ideas together and read quotes from famous artists.

Then the painting began!  They traced their hands on canvas panels and added paint in warm colors.  They also explored making texture in the wet acrylic paint with sticks and printing with bottle caps.

Next came the cool colors for the background.

The final step was to collage their ideas onto their paintings.  I typed all their brainstormed thoughts and artist quotes so they could cut, color and glue them to their paintings. They also drew directly on their canvas with crayons or markers.

I love the way each student really expressed their own ideas through their paintings!

I CAN: creatively use warm and cool color combinations; talk about art; develop my own ideas about my own art making.
