In 5th grade, we focused on globalization and art history from around the world! Like 4th grade, we focused on bettering our techniques while building on our foundations. While we used a variety of mediums, I wanted to focus on the techniques that are transferrable to all arts if applied correctly: still-life drawings and color theory. This year, we step a lot of time learning how to train our hands and eyes to draw what we see in the most accurate way possible. I introduced shadows, foreshortening, and distance while drawing to demonstrate sophistication and knowledge of still-life drawing. We also got down to the nitty-gritty of color theory with the help of the Pop Art movement while bettering our painting techniques! This year was about building confidence in the artwork we created.
