As we progressed through the month of October, the students participated in a variety of art projects. Mr. Ferguson’s grade 5 students used water paints to create fall trees while the grade 4 and 5 students in Ms. Peters’ class used oil pastels and did a finger rub to create a different effect with their lone wolf art. The grade 3 and 4 students in Ms. Callegari’s and Ms. Russell’s classes used water colours to create a fun haunted house scene. (Click a photo to enlarge for a better view.)
The 2/3 students in Ms. Heinrich’s class looked at portraits by Picasso and then created their own Frankenstein portraits inspired by the Spanish painter.
Mrs. Mazinani’s grade 4’s enjoyed creating witch portraits using chalk pastels using Picasso’s cubism style. They used side view and front view profiles to create their portraits. Note how they used two different colours for the faces and broken lines to create to make their pictures more scary looking.
