    Distance Learning Phase 1: ALL OPTIONAL

     

    Week of 3/30/20-4/3/20- 3rd Chameleon with Shapes/Lines

    Overview: Last week we reviewed symmetry with architecture. This week we will be drawing a chameleon using shapes and lines.

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

    Explanation: This activity you will be using shapes and lines to create a chameleon in a desert or jungle setting. Give your chameleon a personality to make it come alive.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons or markers…)

    Things to know: Chameleons are cold blooded animals and can change their colors to disguise themselves to blend in with their background and to hide from their predators.

    Tasks: Use shapes and lines you will create a simple chameleon. Use the example as a checklist

    1. Begin with parallel lines (in example)
    2. Create a rounded triangle for the chameleon head
    3. Circular eye “pops” out of the head so it can turn in any direction
    4. Add the spiral tail, legs, and spikes on the back and tail
    5. Add colors and give it a personality

    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 #CBTheis3rdgrade just for my 3rd 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- 3rd Grade Symmetrical Building Creature Adventure

    Overview: Last week we were reviewing the African safari Silhouette. This week we will be reviewing symmetry with architecture. Create a creature to take over your symmetrical building.

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

    Explanation: This activity you will be creating a storyline with a creature taking over the building away from the “bad guys” or a creature saving the kingdom.  The architecture should be symmetrical (same on each side).

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons or markers…)

    Things to know: When creating artwork that is symmetrical, drawing a line (imaginary or real) down the middle (horizontal or vertical) will help draw the same design on each side.

    Tasks: Draw a building using architectural details (pillars, archways, domes, turrets) create a building, split down the middle and create the same design on each side. After creating an amazing building, decide whether a creature is going to save the day or take over from the evil empire!

    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 #CBTheis3rdgrade just for my 3rd graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there.

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20- 3rd Grade Shadow

    Overview: We will be reviewing the African safari Silhouette. Silhouettes are an outline of an object created with light behind the object. The more dramatic the lighting is, the more contrast the shadow will be.

    Estimated Time: 25 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: This activity you will be creating shadows with found objects like your hands, paper cutouts, objects in your house. By holding up objects, behind or in front of light, there will be shadows cast on a wall away from the light.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to cast shadow

    Things to know: You can use anything to cast a shadow. If you would like to start with your hands making “shadow puppets” that takes little or no material preparation. If you would like to extend the project you may plan to cut out shapes for a possible puppet show.

    Tasks: If you would like to use hands or other shapes to create shadows, you are creating silhouettes! If you can hold objects up to the light or place them so they can cast a shadow on the wall. You can trace the shadows created to make a one-of-a-kind shadow drawing.

    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 #CBTheisshadow just for my 3rd graders!
