Art Class Returns!

 Hello Artists!

I am so happy to be returning to St. Therese School to see all of my artists!  I enjoyed seeing all the artwork you emailed to me last year.  I have really missed all of you and am looking forward to meeting all the new artists, too!

I know things will be a bit different, but I hope to help you have fun creating new and different works of art this year.

Please be sure to have your own art supplies because we can't share with our friends.


See you soon,

Miss Viggiano

Summer Fun Art Ideas

As we get close to the last day of school, there will not be any art projects due this week.  I hope everyone enjoyed the projects I have been posting and I hope you all have a great summer!

Below are a few places to find fun art ideas to keep your creativity flowing, if you are interested.

tate.org.uk/kids
        Here you will find fun things about many artists, you can watch videos, play games, do activities and crafts, and paint pictures in the tate paint section (under the games and puzzles section).

Art for Kids Hub on youtube.com
       Here you can find many different videos on how to draw just about anything!  There are video game characters, movie and tv characters, animals, food, etc.  Explore the things you like and try some new things if you like.

ducksters.com
       There are many subject areas on this site, but my favorite is Art History.  You can explore many different artists and art movements.  There are also many games and fun things to do here, too.

Thank you for sharing your awesome artistic talents with me this year!  I hope to see you all again in September!  Stay well, everyone!

                       Art Lessons May 18, 2020

                        Project due June 1, 2020

***Send a picture of the finished project to me at                             art@stthereseroxbury.org

Grades K-4:  Students will learn how to draw an owl by watching the video at the following link.

                   https://youtu.be/OJZF9Nka-78

If the link does not work, go to youtube.com and search for How to Draw an Owl.  It is located on the Art for Kids Hub.

Grades 5-8:  Students will watch a short video about artist Robert Rauschenberg, then create a collage of their own design in his style.

1.  tate.org.uk/kids/explore/kids-view/explore-robert-rauschenberg
2.  Think about his style of using random items to create collage art, which is a collection of different items arranged into one complete work with a central theme.
3.  Choose a theme.  Some examples are sports, food, family, faces, cars, etc.  Use your imagination! Collect pictures that fit your theme and cut them from old magazines, newspapers, store sale papers, etc.  On a piece of paper about the size of construction paper, arrange your pictures in a way that looks good to you.  You can add a few words, too, that help describe your theme.

Art Project May 11, 2020

Grades 3-8

1.  tate.org.uk/kids/explore/who-is/who-marisa-merz
2.  Read the information about Marisa Merz and her art style, called Arte Povera.  Take notice of the materials she used and the name of her style, which used whatever she had on hand.  
3.  Think about the way she created her art.  Look at the examples presented to get ideas for your own artwork.
4.  Look around your house to see what materials you could use to create your own Arte Povera sculpture.  Be sure to ask permission before you take items to use.  Gather whatever you think you could use, then imagine what you could make with them.  Be creative and make an unusual sculpture or 3D work of art.
5.  Write a 3-5 sentence explanation of what materials you used, why you chose them, and what you are expressing in your work.  Take a picture of your work and email it to me with the explanation by Thursday, May 14, 2020.   
                     art@stthereseroxbury.org

Grades K-2
Students will watch a video about how to draw a dragon.  They will draw their own version, outline it with markers, and add a background.  They will then color it using crayons.
You Tube Art Hub for Kids  How to Draw a Dragon


A picture of the finished project should be emailed to me by Thursday, May 14, 2020 to:
                   art@stthereseroxbury.org

Have a good week!
