4th Grade students have been studying the art of Wisconsin. The art of Wisconsin is a perfect fit because in Social Studies the curriculum in 4th grade is Wisconsin History. The I CAN statement for this lesson is "I can use one point perspective to create a composition." Students also learned about foreground, middleground and background. The medium for this project is tempera cakes, sharpies, rulers, and ball point pens.
Leaf it to the Kinders
Kinders are working on learning about texture and creating giant leaves almost as big as they are. We used the I CAN statement I CAN demonstrate how to use line and shapes to make different textures.
art Connects Us is the theme for the 2014 WAEA Conference at the United
Community Center, home of Latino Arts and Bruce Guadalupe Community School (BGCS) in
Milwaukee, WI. This refers to the special emphasis the conference will have on arts integration, connections with Common Core Standards, and collaborations with artists. The idea of Art Connects Us is inspired by ALMA, which is an ongoing arts integration initiative at the conference site. I am super excited to be presenting 3 different sessions at this conference, hence I have been busy planning them all week. I am going to use this SLO video for one I found it especially fitting because my educator effectiveness materials were also do this week and I have some refining to do.
