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.
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 use oil pastels or chalk or watercolour pencils
or use lego
Salt Dough Recipe
- I cup salt
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 cup hot water
- Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
- Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
- 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.
- 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.
If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.
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.
Have fun creating!
