GRADE PREP WEEK 4 TERM 3
REMOTE LEARNING 2020
3rd August 2020 – 7th August 2020
READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!
Hello to all my Prep students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.
This is week 4 of Term 3 2020 and all my Prep students are remote learning at home!
We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of self portraits!
In week 2 I asked you to draw a self portrait after watching a video.
And last week (week 3) I asked you to draw a monochromatic self portrait after watching another video.
I have made folders on your grade’s Class Dojo or Seesaw page for you to upload photos of your self portraits for Week 2 and Week 3. These photos are evidence that you have completed this work.
Here are the instructions for the Prep Specialists Rich Task.
This Rich Task will require some thinking and some organising. You will need time to complete it. So the Grade Prep Rich Task should be uploaded to your grade’s ClassDojo or Seesaw folder or portfolio by the end of WEEK 6!
For this Prep Specialists Rich Task, you will need to create a self portrait using “stuff” from around your house.
Label your facial features in English and Italian.
You also need to create an animal face.
Label the facial features of the animal in Italian and English.
Photograph your self portrait and your animal face using your device.
How will you complete this self portrait and animal face without drawing?
What will you use to create this rich task?
You will be using things that you already have at home.
You have lots of CHOICE with how you create your self portrait and animal face.
Perhaps you will create your self portrait with counters or blocks
or with lego
or with stuff from the kitchen cupboard
or cut pieces of paper
or paper plates
or wool or string
or fabric scraps
or playdoh and pasta
or stuff out of the laundry basket
or you could use some of these things
or all of these things
or something I haven’t even listed!
You could even use yourself as part of a huge self portrait like this person!
I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice
in how you create your rich task
I am NOT telling you to go out and buy new art materials or things to use!
NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
You need to THINK about what you already have at HOME and HOW you can use it.
Before you start running around your house like a crazy person collecting objects let’s think about this.
I do not want you touching any objects that don’t belong to you without permission.
I also want you to know and understand that all good artists clean up after themselves.
So, every single thing that you use in your rich task has to be put away properly and correctly after you have finished photographing it.
I cannot wait to see what you create!.
