First, reports went home today. I hope I have connected with everyone about interviews. If there's any challenge or confusion, please contact me via email asap. Also, don't be concerned, I'll be in to do interviews after school, but have called in sick because I'm not yet 100%.
I did want to share student art with you this week though.
We looked at the work of Piet Mondrian and did some great art that's up on our walls. Here's a sample:
|Some of these look like maps|
|Some are sparse and some are busy|
|One looks like a xylophone here|
|The one on top looks like a stained glass window to me|
Students really loved the title of Broadway Boogie Woogie and this delightful brief video shows Mondrian's development as an artist, while you listen to some boogie woogie:
Our follow up to this is based on the work of Jean Dubuffet: still working with primary colours and lines, but curved lines and busy patterns instead of solids. I'm really curious how this will turn out. We've been turning some of our lines from the pumpkin art that went home into patterns for this new work
Here's some samples of Dubuffet's work.
Can't wait to see how that turns out.
Thank you for all your hard work. I think the kids learned a lot from this process (and so did I).
