2- WAY PICTURES
Fourth graders took on a mighty task of creating their own two-way pictures. We started by discussing what space means in art. Using the entire space and creating art that is three dimensional showcases the element of space in art. They had the option to work with a partner or on their own. Students had to use math and art skills for this project. They had to measure five 1 inch strips on two 5 inch by 6 inch papers. With a partner or on their own they had to decide on two subjects that show unity. Using a mixed media combination of markers, crayons, colored pencils, sharpies, oil pastels and watercolor paint they had to fill the entire space of their drawings before they were cut into strips to be glued to a 10 inch by 6 inch paper, folded accordion style. Each strip of their picture was glued to every other space of the 10 inch long paper. Then the 10 inch paper was glued to another piece of paper to keep the zig zag form and create an artwork that can stand on its own.
