This week, I thought everyone could do a fun drawing using the Art for Kids hub on youtube.com

K-3 students will watch a video about how to draw lemonade, then draw and color their own version.

                       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.

Art Project Submissions

I have been having some issues in getting art projects from some students.

Here are a few ways to improve our communications:

1.  Please try to send your projects by Thursday of the week assigned.
2.  Please label your project with your name and grade.
3.  Please do not use google docs as it will not allow me to respond to your email.  I have been trying but the emails are marked undeliverable.
4.  Please send your email to
                 art@stthereseroxbury.org
      I teach in 3 schools and I am trying to keep each school separate, so when you use a different email address, I have to search through my papers to find you.

5.  There are some students who have not sent me any projects, some have sent one or two, and others have sent all of them.  Please catch up on this as I must grade them and enter the grades in a timely manner.

Thank you and have a good weekend!
