6TH GRADE ART EXPLORATORY
Welcome to Exploratory Art! We combine World of Languages with Art to create both 2-D and 3-D hands on projects in this class. 6th grade students will have the experience of rotating through 7 different elective classes this year. World of Language and Art rotate students together and will switch students after a 9 week grading period.
Students started the first marking period studying Latin/Roman Art. We looked at symmetrical art created by the ancient Romans and created our own symmetrical Roman Window Paintings.
We also studied French artist, Edgar Degas. We learned how to make sculptures using pipe cleaners, foil, and plaster. Each sculpture represented a human figure in action.
Using watercolor pencils, students studied the art of still life and some basic shading techniques!
