GRADE 4 WEEK 5 REMOTE LEARNING CELESTIAL BODIES 2020

GRADE 4 WEEK 5 REMOTE LEARNING

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

I can’t believe it is Week 5 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different celestial bodies

And in Week 4 you drew 2 ideas for a celestial bodies artwork

Now, in Week 5, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create a celestial bodies  artwork.

This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

In the past, my grade 3 students have created a celestial bodies artwork using clay like this.

This artwork involved-

  • deciding which of the celestial bodies you were going to create with

  • deciding how the celestial bodies were going to interact if the student was using more than one type of celestial body

  • deciding whether the celestial bodies claywork was going to be 3D and freestanding or flat

  • painting the claywork after it came out of the kiln

But you won’t be making a celestial bodies clay work in the art room.

In this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.

How can you produce an artwork that has more than one celestial body in it? How can you put them together? Or perhaps you just want to create one of the celestial bodies? What will you use?

So you have lots of choice with how you create your celestial bodies artwork. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work.

So perhaps you will draw

or paint

 

or use oil pastels or chalk or watercolour pencils

or use lego

or make salt dough

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

or use cut paper

or torn paper

or cardboard

or aluminum foil

use stuff from the kitchen drawers and cupboards

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or other stuff

or all of those things

or something I haven’t even listed!

This moon looks like it has been made using shaving cream!

If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.Email your photos to me when you have finished.

And, of course, tidy up after you have created!!!

I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by celestial bodies!

You can send it in earlier but remember this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

Have fun creating!

GRADE 4 WEEK 4 REMOTE LEARNING CELESTIAL BODIES 2020

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

I can’t believe it is Week 4 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES!

 

If you haven’t done the Week 3 activity yet please go back to Week 3 HERE.

Did you email your rough draft to me last week?

If you haven’t done that yet send it to me by email so I can put it onto the blog post. If you want to look at everybody else’s rough drafts, that is where they are, on last week’s blog post. Go to where it says HERE up above and it will take you there!

So by now you have looked at lots of images of celestial bodies and you have drawn 4 rough drafts as well.

If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.

This week I would like to see 2 ideas for your own celestial bodies art work. You are NOT making the final art work yet. You are just working on 2 different ideas. How can you produce an artwork that has more than one celestial body in it? How can you put them together? Or perhaps you just want to create one of the celestial bodies? What will you use?

Fold a piece of paper in half so you have two spaces.

Draw up 2 different ideas for your final art work. You can use a bit of colour this time but REMEMBER this is NOT your final piece. This is just working on two different ideas!

What art materials will you use? Are you going to draw your final piece?

Pencils? Textas? Crayons? Oil pastels? Watercolour pencils?

Do you have any paint?

What have you got at home that you can use?

Perhaps you want to try to make a 3D artwork?

Playdoh? Plasticine or modelling clay?

Or you could make salt dough? But ask your parents permission first!

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

What else have you got that you could use?

Lego? Other construction materials?

Scrap cardboard?

Anything else?

I am not asking you to rush out and buy materials to use for this task. Use what you already have at home.

And this week you are just coming up with 2 ideas, not actually doing the final piece. Do a drawing of your idea and write down what you think you might use to make it.  Do this TWICE!

And remember, it is OKAY to change your mind!

You need to think like an artist and not see changing your mind as making a mistake, because it is NOT. It is just that you came up with a better idea!

And that’s it!

Photograph your paper, with two different ideas on it, with your device, and email it to me.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

I look forward to seeing your interesting ideas.

Bye!
