3rd Grade ART American Section
Welcome to the 3rd Grader s PPT art exhibition! Each Grade in Primary has an average of 15 art classes per school year thus most of the projects that you will see took an average of 4 art periods. This enables the children to better understand the notion and to become more familiar with the concepts and technique (s) being used. These art projects can also be seen as a process of discovery, rather than just a finished product. As an art teacher, my role is to not only introduce the language of art (through the 5 elements of design) but to also encourage skills that promote self development in general through reflection, observation, concentration, imagination, problem solving, and improvisation (the happy accident)! One can only hope that the children take these experiences out of the art room to see the world with new eyes. I hope you enjoy the show! Lisa Demangeat

Project 3 WHAT SHAPE ARE YOU IN? Color mixing Making the abstract figurative Using chance to spark the imagination
Leonardo da Vinci once said that when he was stuck for an idea he would stare at a dirty stucco wall. In it he would find: landscapes, battles, clouds, humorous faces and draperies…
CAN YOU FIND PICTURES IN THE SHAPES YOU MADE WITH THE INK ?
Project 4 FACE IN SPACE Drawing with wire
Exaggerating features Using wire as line Facial proportions Playing with shadows
Drawing with wire was created by the artist Alexander Calder; described as "drawing in space. Alexander Calder American
By casting shadows the children played with making something 3D into 2D!
By adding paper behind the wire the children observed the similarity between drawn lines and those formed in wire.
