3rd Grade: day one last week, day 2 next week

I visited third grade classrooms last week on Tuesday and Thursday, and we used a ton of color.

The project:

By looking at the work of the surrealist photographer, Man Ray and his Rayographs, we discussed how surrealist art used everyday, ordinary objects, to compose images that were fantastic.

Our process:

Using a white drawing surface, we outlined a rectangle to identify the perimeters of our image.  We then traced everyday objects, within the perimeter of our rectangle, making sure to add variety by tracing multiple objects and by repeating objects to create patterns.  We used oil pastels to color in the objects, the foreground, with warm colors, and the background with cool colors.  Next week we will resume coloring, and finish our surrealist object drawing.
