I can’t believe it is Week 8 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT

is an art project that started in Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. in 2006 when some secondary school Visual Arts teachers got together over a coffee.

Those teachers wanted to come up with an idea that all their students could work on together and thus the Hexagon Project was born.

Now thousands of students from all over the world participate in this annual project.

Cambridge Primary School participates in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT every second year and has done since 2012.

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT reflects on how we are all INTERDEPENDENT.

Most students easily understand the meaning of independence.

You start off as a baby not being able to do much and eventually learn to feed yourself and dress yourself as you learn and grow.

Once you start school you are developing as a child and a student and increasingly doing all sorts of things by yourself.

Being INTERDEPENDENT is how we all DEPEND ON EACH OTHER in different ways.

We are all –

  • local citizens (family, Cambridge PS, neighbourhood, Hoppers Crossing)

  • regional citizens (Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

  • global citizens

connected to and INTERDEPENDENT on each other for so many things and in so many ways!

How are you connected to others by your INTERDEPENDENCE???

Here are 2 short videos for you to watch about INTERDEPENDENCE.


It is very clear that we all have a much greater understanding of our INTERDEPENDENCE in 2020 after being locked down at home in isolation for many weeks and having time to think about how much we rely on each other!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT  for students from aged 4-18+ uses the shape of a hexagon as a way for students to reflect on their INTERDEPENDENCE in an artwork.

I want you to create an artwork, using whatever materials you like, in the shape of a hexagon, reflecting your understanding of INTERDEPENDENCE.

When your artwork is complete I want you to photograph your hexagonal artwork with your device and send it to me by Saturday 6th June 2020.

I will then mark that you have completed a hexagon shaped artwork onto Compass and this will become part of your Semester 1 report for 2020.

The hexagon template for your artwork is available here. You are encouraged to print this hexagon and trace it to use as a template so all hexagons are the same size.

I will then print up the photos of  all your hexagon shaped artworks and display them at Cambridge PS.

If YOU want your artwork to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT for 2020 you need to upload the photo of your artwork onto ARTSONIA.  This is your choice. If you do not want to participate in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT you do not have to.

ARTSONIA IS READY FOR UPLOADING!

  1. Put your finished hexagon on a flat surface that is a different colour to your hexagon.

  2. Photograph your hexagon with your device holding your ipad flat and steady. Make sure you can see ALL your hexagon on the screen.

  6. Click on your name  and you will be taken to a Welcome page.

  7. Click on add new artwork.

  8. Click on Hexagon Project 2020 for your grade level. Each grade level and Enrichment has it’s own project box .

  9. Click on the select image/video button to locate your photo on your device.

  10. Click upload now.

  11. Click accept.

  12. Give your hexagon a title.

  13. Click submit to teacher.

  14. You can enter an artist statement or press skip.

  15. Your hexagon image will appear and it will say that you have submitted your hexagon to your teacher for review.

Congratulations The uploading of your hexagonal artwork onto the Artsonia website must be completed by 30th June 2020 to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT!

ENRICHMENT WEEK 3 AND 4 REMOTE LEARNING FAMOUS ARTWORK 2020

This work is due by MON 11th MAY 2020!

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

avatar Shelley Menhennethello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

I can’t believe it is Week 3 of remote learning already!

 

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

All grade 5 students at Cambridge Primary School learn about PARODIES of famous artworks. So if you were in Grade 5 last year this first bit is a review of work on Famous Artwork Parodies that you did last year. For everybody else it is new learning about what an art parody is. After that is the work I want you all to do for Visual Arts! All students from Grade 5, Grade 6 and Enrichment will be doing this work.

What is a PARODY?

The easiest way to understand a PARODY is to start with a musical PARODY.

When you take a piece of popular music and change it to make it funny you create a musical PARODY.

Sesame St is full of musical PARODIES.

Try this one.

And one of my favourites, Weird Al Yankovic, has made a career out of writing musical parodies and then creating the videos to go with them. He has been doing this for more than 30 years!

Hey! Wait a minute? What is all this music? Are we doing MUSIC in Visual Arts?

HEY word

Yes we are!

Now, back to Weird All Yankovic!

And for those who love Star Wars!

So now you understand what a musical parody is. It is easy to figure out what a famous art parody is. It is when you take a piece of Visual Art and recreate it making fun of it.

Here are some Mona Lisa Parodies.

In the past Cambridge Primary School students have created some very funny and interesting Mona Lisa parodies.

grade 5 mona lisa parody drawing 2015 26grade 5 mona lisa parody drawing 2015 25grade 5 mona lisa parody drawing 2015 24grade 5 mona lisa parody drawing 2015 2grade 5 mona lisa parody drawing 2015 21

In this time of remote learning we are going to do something a little bit different!

I want you to choose a famous artwork and recreate it.

A lot of  people locked down at home have been doing this all over the world.

So what I would like you to do this week is spend some time looking at and thinking about famous artworks and deciding on which famous artwork you want to recreate.

So, do I want you to paint or draw something?

Instead you can use yourself or members of your family and dress them up to recreate a famous artwork. a bit like this.

Or you can use a different sort of material to recreate a famous artwork. Like this

LEGO

 

 

 

T SHIRTS SOCKS CLOTHING

FOOD

 

More ideas are here on my Pinterest board.

https://www.pinterest.com.au/shelley109/recreate-famous-artworks/

Now, to complete this task is going to take –

  • thinking

  • imagination

  • researching

  • viewing

  • organisation

So I am going to let you use this week for thinking and researching and figuring out what you are going to do.

It is okay to change your mind during this process.

All good artists change and adapt their ideas as they think about and work on them. This is part of the artistic process and is not a mistake or to be looked on negatively.

So after you have done your researching, thinking and planning it is time to actually do it.

I would like all famous artwork recreations/parodies to be photographed and emailed to me

by Mon 11th May 2020.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

If you have any questions you can email me

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

If you can’t think of an art work here are some art collections you can look at.

The Visual Arts task for Week 2 for all grade 3/4/5/6/E students was to think about the many creative ways the students have used their time over the past few weeks and to send me photos of these creative artworks. Perhaps they have been drawing, knitting, painting, making models, crocheting, making jewellery, printing, constructing, cutting, making collages, etc, etc, etc???

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

As the Visual Arts teacher at Cambridge Primary School I have decided to refresh my blog and use it as the space to display the  artworks created by my students during this strange, weird remote learning term 2 of 2020.

I will also provide details, procedures and videos for set tasks for different grade levels on my blog as the weeks of term 2 progress. All my students will be notified of set tasks for Visual Arts via their weekly grid sent out by their classroom teacher.  The entry for Visual Arts on the grid might say go to the Back Art Room Blog and provide a QR code link to take the student to the correct blog post.  Then on the blog I will provide them with the detailed instructions of the task to be completed.

The Visual Arts entry on the grid for Week 2 Term 2 just asked all grade 3/4/5/6/E students to email photos of the artworks they have been working on at home over the past 3 weeks. My email address is

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

In the Cambridge Primary School Newsletter I also said that I was more than happy to receive artwork photos via email from the Prep/1/2 students even though I am not teaching them this semester.

And hooray, hooray, several students have already responded! So I will try and get all of their wonderfully individual artworks up on this blog by the end of today so you can admire their creations!

Luckily for me I really enjoy working on my blog, yet rarely fit it in to my usually crazy, busy schedule.

And isn’t that a sad sentence to reflect on! That something I honestly really enjoy doing is almost never done because I am ‘too busy’ to fit it in! I do think that when we all are released from lockdown that we will all consider more what it is that makes us happy and will try to include these activities more in our daily lives.

 

Thanks for reading this post!
