6th Grade Art

This course introduces students to a middle school mindset in art. It teaches students how to think and draw through the artistic process of brainstorming ideas, sketching, refining those ideas, reflecting on the work that’s being created in progress, assessing the direction to continue forward with, and ultimately creating a unique and polished piece of final work.

Musical Instruments

In this project students chose a Musical Instrument to draw, carefully observed the shapes that make up that instrument, and drew what they saw in front of them. Students sketched out a few ideas, picked a favorite idea, refined that drawing, and finally chose the colors they wanted to use to represent that instrument ultimately creating a unique and polished piece of final work.

Watercolor Animals

In this project students chose an animal they would like to explore how to draw. Students carefully observed the shapes that make up that animal, sketched out a few ideas, picked a favorite idea, refined that drawing, before painting it with Watercolors.The results are some cute, fun, and exciting looking animals.

Textured Landscapes

In this project students chose a Landscape, Seascape or Cityscape they would like to explore how to draw. Students carefully observed the shapes that they saw, sketched out a few ideas, picked a favorite idea, and then represented that image using textures and colors.
