    Distance Learning Phase 1: ALL OPTIONAL

     

    Week of 3/30/20-4/3/20-  1st grade- Found Objects

    Overview: Last week we were working on self-portraits. If you would like to add color or continue your self-portrait you may. This week we will be drawing a found objects collage.

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to gather objects around the house and trace the outline. The objects collected will be placed to overlap each other creating a collage. 

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil and found objects (brush, spoon, fork, markers, ruler, sock….)

    Things to know: You can make your objects “see-through” like the example below OR you can draw your objects so they appear in front of or behind other objects.

    Tasks:

    1. Find 2 or 3 random object in your house you can trace.
    2. Trace each object on your paper 3 or 4 times. Let the lines cross and overlap.
    3. Spread the objects out to fill up the paper.
    1. Color your objects neatly and completely

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis1stgrade just for my 1st graders!  If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there. I will have examples of artwork available.

    Thank you! Keep Creating😊

    Week of 3/23/20-3/27/20-  1st Grade Self-Portrait

    Overview: Last week we continued to practice our texture skills with repeated lines, shapes, color to create patterns.  This week we will be working on self-portraits. Texture will be shown mostly in hair and skin- straight, curly, fine, thick, wavy, etc.

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to use a mirror or photo of yourself and draw a self-portrait.  

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), chalk on a chalkboard or chalkboard, markers, etc.

    Things to know: Remember all the features of the face (checklist)- eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, ears, hair, neck, shoulders, details like freckles, glasses, or pupil.

    Tasks: This week we will draw a self-portrait. We have already had practice with this so you should be a PRO! Remember key features- lemon shaped eyes, nose with a “u” and parenthesis “(…)” for the nostrils, “m” for the top lip and a “u” for the bottom stretched out. This time I want you to use unnatural colors. Anything goes, rainbow hair, polka dot skin, or snakeskin, etc. Have fun with this😊

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis1stgrade just for my 1st graders!  If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there.

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20- 1st Grade Texture

    Overview: We are reviewing texture. When we created texture on our clay owls and pinch pots, we repeated lines, shapes, color to create patterns.  We carved patterns into the clay to create texture you could SEE and FEEL. Today we are going to create FOUND texture.

     Estimated Time: 20 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to observe and FEEL texture. Most of these patterns we can feel. When we look at patterns, we can see if something is smooth or spiky, wet or sticky, bumpy or rough. When we feel patterns or texture, we confirm what we think we saw.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to draw (anything), found objects

    Things to know: Sidewalk, walls, floors, furniture all have texture. Make sure your hands are clean when you touch these surfaces. We will be able to create new textures with home objects.

    Tasks: Review what texture means, looks like, and feels like. Do you have to feel/touch texture to know how it feels? Can you SEE the texture on something without touching it? After observing objects in and around your house, with clean hand FEEL the texture and describe what you think it will be before you touch it. If you are able, we can do some crayon rubbings. You can place paper over the area (wooden, tile floor, sidewalk, etc.), turn the crayon on its side (no crayon paper) and using the side of the crayon, rub to reveal the amazing texture underneath.

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture email it to me atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheistexture just for my 1st graders!
