It is so interesting to see how students tackle an open-ended painting session.
*Next year, I am going to have the students trace a cup for the circle and hand cut their dots*
Below are a few examples of the student's symmetrical work. I showed them how to divide their dots into halves, quarters and eighths (fold it like a taco, fold it like a pie, fold it like a pizza!) They looked at examples of symmetry and worked to create their own (because Art + Math = Design!)
One of the second grade teachers emailed me a picture of her student during our Halloween party.
"During our party Lily used her treat to make a symmetrical figure. She learned it from your class."
Back to the evaluations...
The students filled out a simple rubric about how they feel they've met the goals of this project, and how they worked during the process. The following answers were from a reflective question I thought I'd include to get to know them a little better...
|I had to add this one in--- this kid I've got to work on! "Art isn't important, we only draw." |
Good thing I've got 3 more years to change his mind:)
|This student knows what's up. Such a sophisticated answer!|
|Art is good exercise for your arms! Love.|
