Year 3/4 Term 2- Pattern

Pattern is one of the Principle of Art.

Principles are a way artist can organise the elements of art.

Here is a list of the art elements and principles:

Elements:

Line

Form

Shape

Colour

Space

Value

Texture

 

Principles:

Harmony

Balance

Proportion

Emphasis

Variety

Movement

Rhythm

This term we will be focusing on the principle of pattern. In class this week we have discussed the art elements that we can use to make patterns. Have a think about these.

We made up a definition of a pattern: A pattern is something that is repeated.

Have a look at these paintings and see if you can spot any patterns. Comment on which one you like the best and why.

Profession Development- Visual Diaries in the Artroom

image imageimageOn Thursday Night I was lucky enough to attend a Profession Development session with the author the new art books ‘Guide to Visual Diaries’.

We have been working on setting up a process with the year 3-6 students on how to use a visual diary as a tool to record information, test out ideas and processes and as a record of our learning in the art room.

This profession Development session game me any ideas and planning tool that I have already started to use in the classroom and in my planning for next term.

A great way to be inspired and get those creative juices flowing.

Collaborative Art Works

This week is Collaborative Art Work Week. Each class is taking part in creative a large group art work on a canvas for our school fate.

The school fate will be held in March. Each class is asked to produce a canvas to be sold at a silent auction. Today the years 1/2 students took a mid term break from Performing Arts to complete their class art work. Some of the year 5/6 students also completed their canvas today.

The years 1-6 students will be focusing on printing. Years 1/2 students also completed their back ground with some ink blowing to create a patterned, textured and bright background.

Hope you enjoy the photos and seeing the canvases at the fate.
