Design Compositions

Last week we refreshed a lot of our design element and color skills. Taking cues from the cave painting symbols and other textures, the children created interesting pieces. I asked that they keep in mind balance, line , design and use a variety of techniques. Most of them are so accomplished at taking a cue and without hesitation, running with it. I always love seeing the results. As the week progressed, the works became more refined and the children who were in Friday's class, took the same elements and applied them to sculptures.

 Week One: Cave Paintings

It has been an eventful week in our Art Literacy class. We have been all around the world.  I would like to thank all of my wonderful students for their great efforts. We began with the story of the discovery of the discovery of cave paintings in Lascaux,  France  and also looked at images from  Spain , where the oldest known cave paintings have been found,  in the cave called El Castillo. The prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils are now the world's oldest known cave art that dates more than 40,800 years old.
