Your sunflowers final artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

You must submit all your artworks (rough draft 4 sunflowers/rough draft vase of sunflowers/final artwork vase of sunflowers) or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 6 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different sunflowers.

If you didn’t do this work go to week 3 here.

Ariella 3A sun

Mishika 3A sun

And in Week 4 you drew a rough draft of a vase of sunflowers. if you didn’t do this work go to Week 4 here.

Now, in Week 5 and Week 6, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create an artwork of a vase of sunflowers.

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 vase of flowers like this.

This artwork involved-

  • drawing a line across the paper to show the edge of the table

  • painting the background and the table clothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 64 2015

  • printing flower stems using a piece of scrap cardboard on its sidegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 59 2015

  • making sure the stems weren’t all perfectly straightgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 56 2015

  • painting or printing sunflower heads leaving one stem without a headgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 55 2015

  • making sure the sunflowers were not all just facing the frontgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 54 2015

  • some of the sunflowers might even be dropping their petals onto the tableclothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 52 2015

  • folding a piece of coloured paper in half and drawing half a vase on one side, cutting out the shape and unfolding it to form a vasegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 51 2015

  • gluing the paper vase on top of the stemsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 49 2015

  • decorating the vase with buttons, beads, sequins, ribbon, paper and fabric scrapsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 35 2015

  • creating the last sunflower head with Model Magic, an air dry clay, gluing it onto the last stem and painting it so one of the flower heads was three dimensional.grade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 28 2015

This sort of artwork is called mixed media because so many different sorts of materials and ways of creating are used at the same time to create a whole artwork.

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

So you have lots of choice with how you create your vase of sunflowers this week. 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 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 folded paper

or torn paper

or cardboard

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!

And if you decide to create other sorts of flowers instead of sunflowers that is also okay.

This cooking artist, Lorraine Elliott from  her website Not Quite Nigella has created a focaccia as a vase of sunflowers!

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.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

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

I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings!

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

Have fun creating!

GRADE 3 WEEK 5 REMOTE LEARNING SUNFLOWERS 2020

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

GRADE 3 WEEK 4 REMOTE LEARNING SUNFLOWERS 2020

 

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

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 SUNFLOWERS AND VINCENT VAN GOGH!

 

But first let’s look at an amazing place in Paris called the Atelier Des Lumieres. Here you can view digital renderings of Vincent Van Gogh’s artworks on the walls, floor and ceiling! Enjoy!

And now, back to work! If you haven’t done the Week 3 activity yet please go back to Grade 3 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 sunflowers and you have drawn 4 rough drafts as well.

 

Your task for this week is to do another rough draft but just one this week. This time I want you to draw a vase of sunflowers.Because you have practised drawing sunflowers that are closed or a side view, try and include them in your vase of flowers. If you look at Vincent Van Gogh’s vases of sunflowers they weren’t all facing the front or all perfect. That is what makes them interesting to look at!

You can add a bit of colour to this drawing if you want but it is still a rough draft. Do not stress if it is not PERFECT!

So try to get a table top in your rough draft drawing so your vase isn’t floating in the air! If you draw a line across your paper about 1/3 from the bottom that will be fine. Now your table is the bottom third of the drawing. You need to draw the base of your vase below the top line of the table, not just sitting on it. Have a look at where Vincent Van Gogh put the bottom of his vase. Will your table cloth be plain or have a pattern?

What about the shape of your vase?

Will it be plain or patterned?

When you draw your stems will they be more interesting if they are all straight and perfect or a bit bendy and twisty?

The more detail you add to the flower heads the better your drawing will be. Look at the real sunflower photos to help you.

Have fun drawing your vase of sunflowers and remember that is not supposed to be perfect but a rough draft of your ideas.

Please email your vase of sunflowers rough draft to me at –

Next week we will do your final piece of sunflower art!

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.

GRADE 6 WEEK 3 AND 4 REMOTE LEARNING FAMOUS ARTWORK 2020

This work is due by MON 11th MAY 2020!

Hello to all my Grade 6 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

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. Below is a review of the learning you did last year on Famous Artwork parodies. After that is the work I want you to do for Visual Arts!

REVIEW of Visual Arts topic from 2019.

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.

Meanwhile here in 2020! (Yes, that means the review part is over!)

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

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
