During the year, check back periodically as we work through our current unit; randomly selected student work will appear as it progresses!
Hello again all, from Miss Soos! I hope you have been enjoying the awesome artmaking that is happening in Room 5 this year!
Our final unit this year is Illustration. Illustration is visual art used to tell a story or deliver a message, and is often used in concert with text.
6th grade will create Secret Place Books about what "Home" means to them. Secret Place Books are a simple type of pop-up book that offers many possibilities, with a hidden "room" inside the center of the book.
7th grade will be working on Dictionary Features. They are pulling pages directly from old dictionaries to use as their background layer for a drawn illustration about featured words of their choosing.
8th grade will have a short adventure in emulating illustrator Mary GrandPre, illustrator of the Harry Potter book series (and other works). They will use mixed drawing and painting media together, with layering techniques, in order to emulate Ms. GrandPre's style and process while copying from one of her works.
This year we'll explore many units like Sculpture, Illustration, Drawing and Painting, Mixed Media, Collage, Design, and more; this will help us connect with our own as well as others' inner Artists, and to express and explore our own styles and creative ideas.
