History of Art Ed website
For those of you in History of Teaching Art, I just found a great website called the History of Art Education. "This website is devoted to the history of American art education. Organized chronologically like chapters in a book, each page of information takes the reader on a journey through the history of art education."
Red White & Blue
Here are a few of our first, second, and third grade patriotic art drawings. Students used Crayola Oil Pastels to create these fabulous red, white, and blue pictures.
Last week the VPK art classes learned about God's creativity. We talked about things God created and students drew pictures of some of their favorites. Here are a few of their drawings.
I have been studying Victor D'Amico for a class project in History of Teaching Art. His vision, philosophy, and passion for art is not only inspiring but also intriguing. He was a spokesman for art education in America, a remarkable artist, teacher, visionary, and pioneer of modern art education. This study has encouraged me to look into D'Amico further and investigate how I can incorporate some of his teaching methods into my lessons.
Sometimes I get a little carried away
In class we are working on our personal art history. I created my artwork and submitted the assignment but got carried away and created another piece of art. I know--I'm ridiculous--what can I say--sometimes the creative process overtakes me.. So here it is--Personal Art History #2
Kindergarten students are studying wildlife artist Guy Coheleach. You can check out his artwork by clicking the link below. Students are creating their own Florida wildlife booklets. They have learned how to draw an owl, a frog, and a turtle so far.
5th grade animals
Fifth grade students studied mammals in science this year. To integrate their science with art they chose a mammal, researched it in computer class, and created a watercolor painting of their particular animal. They worked hard and it shows. Great Job!
2nd & 3rd grade artists...
...are learning about patriotism in Art class. We have looked at flag paintings by Jasper Johns, Pat Matthews, and Scott LaBaido. We are creating our own American flag drawings with oil pastels. Students enjoyed the video below of artist Scott LaBaido painting an American flag as someone sang God Bless America. There is also a link to his website.
