3rd Grade Artwork
In third grade, students will be exploring a variety of art concepts including: Directional Lines, Space in Art, Value of Colors, and Monochromatic Colors. Throughout the year students will be using paint, clay, tooling metal, oil pastel, colored pencil and digital photography to create beautiful works of art.
3rd grade artists are reviewing their line types and learning about three new directional lines: horizontal,, vertical, and diagonal on this projects. Students discovered that most capital letters include directional lines and used this knowledge to create “wacky compositions. 3rd grade arts used overlapping, different sizes, and going off the page with each letter in their first, middle, or last name. To make their artwork more colorful students chose from four review color families: warm, cool, primary, and secondary. These artists used watercolor pencils to add color and different values to each part of their artwork. This project was a great review of past art concepts, as well as an introduction into how artists can create interesting artworks just using directional lines.
1. Did you create an interesting composition by overlapping, using different sizes, and going off the page with directional lines: horizontal, vertical, diagonal
2. Did you color correctly using only one color family (warm, cool, primary, secondary) making sure two of the same colors did not touch?
3. Did you paint correctly to show different values of colors?
4. Did you cut and glue correctly to make parts of your artwork 3-D?
