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 Perspective Still Life
3rd grade artists are leaning how to create perspective or space in their artwork. Perspective is what makes object look close up and far away when you look at an artwork. Students used an online resource to search for a still life object (something from real life that cannot move on its own) to design a project around. Using this object as inspiration students create artworks with correct foreground, middleground, and back ground details to demonstrate perspective. These artworks were created on plastic sheets using permanent marker and acrylic paint.
