It’s never a dull moment with these 3 artists. We skipped the visual journal today so we could work on the collages the whole class period. We started off hearing all about the new addition to Lauren’s family – a new baby brother! She was so excited she was going to get a Big Sister sticker from the hospital! The artists started by added more texture to their collages. We added the texture with modeling paste. Then the girls added more detail with the patterned stencils. They used sponges with the stencils so that was a new experience. We celebrated Roy Lichtenstein’s b.day yesterday. We looked at several of his Pop Art paintings. In the middle of our Art History lesson we learned that McKena went to a Rangers game. We also learned about compound words. They had learned about compound words at school Monday. Not real sure what all that had to do with Roy Lichtehstein, but they felt it was very important to add to the Art History lesson! Hope everyone has a grand Tuesday!
