Collaborative Art

LI:  To use different types of warm and cool colours to recreate a world-known painting from Van Gogh.

This week’s art is about Van Gogh and his famous art piece “The Starry Night”. The Class was divided into 2 groups of 16 people, 1 of each group remade “The Starry Night” in warm colours and cool colours digitally. Each group divided 16 pieces of the Starry Night with each person in the group. Working as a collaborative team we gathered all or pieces to 1 DLO to finally reach our desired outcome.

I found this activity fun because I worked with everyone and used my art skills to re-create a square from a famous painting.

SLJ Art for arts Sake

I completed the summer learning journey task called art for arts sake.

First I chose what I wanted my silhouette to be, I chose a flying eagle.

Then, I drew the eagle on a piece of paper and coloured it in black.

Lastly, I cut out my black silhouette, and stuck it onto a white piece of paper.

I enjoyed this task because I enjoy doing art.

SLJ Cool Character

For the summer learning journey I created my own character using materials from outside.

I went out into my backyard and collwcted some materials to assemble my character. I used items like flowers and leaves to make this.

I made a fairy and her name is Blossom. I used a sunflower for her T-shirt, white flowers for her skirt, and leaves for her wings.

I enjoyed this activity becuase I got ot spend time outside looking for items to create my own character.

Art | LS1 Class Whale Tail

For the past few days me and Alexxa have been working on the LS1 class whale tail.

First, we needed to create a design that we wanted to be on the whale tail. For our design, we chose to do a half and half, one half of the whale tail would be dark and dull colours to represent a sad future for the whales if we keep killing the whales and keep polluting the ocean. The other half has bright and fun colours to represent a happy future for the whales if we stop killing them and stop polluting the ocean. Then the class had to vote on which design was the best, my design won with 22 votes! The other teams had 12 and 7 votes.

Then, we drew all of the guidelines for where the masking tape would go. Once we finished drawing all of the lines, we put masking tape on top of all of the lines so that when we started painting the whale tail so the edges wouldn’t look bad.

Lastly, we started painting the whale tail, we painted the sad half purple, black, and dull green. Once we were finished with the green and purple, we started doing the orange and pink for the other half. Once we did those colours, we started painting the last spaces navy blue and black. Once we waited for the whale tail to harden and dry, we put more masking tape on the sides of all the spaces to do the black lines between the spaces. We have not finished the whale tail yet, but it looks really good.

I enjoy creating the class whale tail because I like painting and peeling the tape of the tail. I think that even though the whale tail is not done, it is really cool. I need to try and finish getting the whale tail done. I am good at cutting the masking that goes over the edge of the whale tail.
