Students began with color/emotion exercises in order to get them thinking about using color as a representation for emotions.
▪ students were given a word that described an emotion, such as: Anger/Jealousy/Guilt.
▪ students investigated the word’s meaning then used it in a sentence.
▪ students associated a color to the sentence.
▪ students wrote their sentences onto strips of colored construction paper associated with their color.
- student’s then created a simple collage that was later displayed in the hall bulletin board to let the New Sullivan student body aware of what Ms. Burt’s 4th grade class was up too.
Ms. Netter used their word/emotion/color associated work to create a bulletin board that communicated to the New Sullivan community of the exciting things happening in her classroom.
How can we turn a simple sketch into a work of art?
Students were then asked to investigate and identify geometric shapes that could possibly make-up their sketch.Students then created a simple collage using geometric shapes out of construction color paper of their initial sketch.
Some students expressed that they wanted to be:
- a computer game developer
- a body builder
- one young lady created a collage of “food” because that is what she enjoyed!
