Sometimes in the Art Room the students participate in sketchbook challenges. In these challenges the students draw a popsicle stick and on each popsicle stick there is a different prompt for them to draw. Check out some of these 5th graders' creative sketches!
Students had a discussion whether they thought graffiti is a form of art and when it is appropriate to create graffiti. We looked at famous graffiti artists likes Jean-Michel Basquiat. Students then chose a word that inspires them or that they like and they created their word in a graffiti style. The 5th graders blew me away with their creativity and variety of ideas! Check them out below!
Islamic Art Unit
5th graders have spent several weeks working on creating islamic art books that show: Arabic calligraphy, islamic tiles, and architecture. They also created a tile in clay based off of the tile they designed for their books. Below are images from their books and their clay tiles!
