We started another school year with NEW art mediums/art supplies to try! I decided after rules, we needed to get some inspiration, since many of us haven't had art for a long time, and some are new to Miss Oetken's art room all together! So, first I read the book "The Dot". It talks about if just start making marks on your paper, it's a start to making your own art! Then we were ready to get messy!
Each table was a station with a new art supply where students got to try, experiement, and learn new techniques! These mediums/materials included shimmery, metallic watercolor, liquid watercolor in BRIGHT colors, charcoal pencil, chalk pastels, oil pastels, and watercolor pencils!
We circulated from station to station & after 5 minutes of using the material on a 12x 18 white piece of paper at a station, I got to use my fun bird whistle to signal when to move to the next station with our paper! What was the interesting thing, was that most students just got to play and have fun on their paper. AND these multi media drawings started to look A LOT like the famous artist Wassily Kandinsky's compostional abstact pieces of art! Interesting!
|Wassily Kandinsky abstract art. A lot of his art was painted to music or reflected|
musical compositions he composed himself! He also was a musician!
