    Distance Learning Phase 1: ALL OPTIONAL

    Week of 3/30/20-4/3/20- 4th Color Wheel       

    Overview: Last week we designed a self-portrait as a LEGO figure. This week we will create a color wheel.

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

    Explanation: Using the color wheel, you are going to create your own color wheel. You can use found objects or you can draw your own objects.

    Materials that are Needed:  Pencil, colored pencils, markers, etc. whatever is available

    Things to know:  The color wheel consists of 3 primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. Secondary colors are purple, green, and orange. There are also tertiary colors in between the primary and secondary colors: yellow-green, red-orange, red-violet, blue-violet, blue-green, and yellow-orange.

    Tasks: Using the color wheel template, add items to create your own color wheel. If you can not find objects, you can draw objects that consist of the color wheel.

    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 #CBTheis4thgrade just for my 4th 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- 4th Grade Lego Person     

    Overview: Last week we practiced our skills in observational drawing; drawing what we see. This week we are going to turn reality into fantasy! This week we will design a self-portrait as a LEGO figure.

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

    Explanation: If you were a character in the LEGO movie, what would your character look like? Use the lego person template (unless you want a different pose) and characteristics to make it YOU!

    Materials that are Needed:  Pencil, colored pencils, markers, etc. whatever is available

    Things to know:  Adding clothing and props to your character will help personalize it. If you get stuck, feel free to make one for the future you or your fantasy version of yourself.

    Tasks: Using the template, add clothing, props, details in facial features, hair and pose that will personalize the LEGO person.

    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 #CBTheis4thgrade just for my 4th graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there.

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20- 4th Grade Observational Landscape

    Overview: Observational Drawing. If there is good weather, go outside (with permission) and draw what you see. If you can’t go outside, that’s ok! Draw what you can see inside. Make sure you can see what is close and far away.

    Estimated Time: 25 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: Draw what you see, not what you THINK you see. Try to focus in on lines and direction of line and not what you think is there. When you look at landscapes (or just outside) you can see objects that are far away (hills, trees, buildings, etc.) and objects that are closer (toys, trees, furniture, etc.). If you can’t go outside, this may be a room in the house.

    Materials that are Needed:  Pencil (or what is available), Paper, ruler (straight edge)

    Things to know:  Atmospheric perspective is the fancy way of saying, there is a background (far away), middle ground (closer), and foreground (closest to viewer). Objects that are farther away seem SMALLER and duller in color. Objects that are closer seem BIGGER and brighter in color.

    Tasks:  Whether you are able to draw a landscape or a room, there is always points that determine distance from viewer.  Remember, major areas first, details always add LAST! If it is a landscape, you will have the horizon line, where the sky meets the land. If you are inside, your sky and land will be replaced by walls/ceiling/floor.

    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 #CBTheislandscapeobservation just for my 4th graders!
