Drawing Activities P4. Drawing of a face P5. Drawing of a map P6. Four face drawings P7. Upside down drawing P8. The Vase P9. Contour drawing P10 - 11. Landscapes P12. Positive and negative shape P13. Durer's device P14. Final face drawing
Drawing activities: The Face This first attempt of a face drawing felt quite basic, but I had to think about how I wanted to position my face and what features I would include. This drawing is certainly not professional but I enjoyed the activity. This Activity will be used as early as year k-2 by generating artistic ideas through mark, image, and object making and spatial arrangements.
Drawing Activities: The map This drawing was much easier I understood where I had to place everything and did not have to think about detail. This Activity will be used as early as year k-2 by generating artistic ideas through mark, image, and object making and spatial arrangements
Drawing Activities: Face Pictures The top two drawings were completed by an 8 year old girl. The second two were retrieved from the internet.
Drawing Activities: Upside down drawing This was very difficult especially when adding the finer detail. My mind found it hard to focus where the line ended. The lead on my drawing was darker where I was clearly more confidant . I was dissatisfied with the eyes and hands. This particular activity can be attempted from years 3-8, whilst choosing a particular picture this one is not advisable until the later years 5 and up. The technicality of the picture depends on the year level of the students..
Drawing Activities: Vase Interesting activity, my hand thought it had it but my brain seemed to have other ideas. This activity could be used throughout the curriculum.
Drawing Activities: Contour Drawing The banana turned out very basic, I was unable to put any detail in to define any marks or features, therefore ending with a simple result.
Drawing Activities: Landscapes I drew the top landscape, it’s a shoreline picture with the mangroves and turtles of the Northern Territory. The other 2 are retrieved from the internet. http://www.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://kimhunter.ca/thumbnails/stanleyparkcreek.jpg&imgrefurl=http://kimhunter.ca/sketches.htm&h=600&w=465&sz=68&tbnid=2lH5hNdwekyP6M:&tbnh=90&tbnw=70&zoom=1&usg=__7GwEhnbi6mSA94Q216_ftrDGSkc=&docid=p3vDV1_i8-rJJM&sa
Drawing Activities: Landscapes Both landscapes were drawn by year 3 students. The top is a treasure map and the bottom is rolling hills.
Drawing Activity: Positive and Negative Shape Positive shapes occupy positive space, the area around the positive shape, know as the background, is negative space. In this picture the colored in area represents the negative space.
Drawing Activity: Durers device The car drawing was quite difficult, I would allow the more advanced year 6 students to attempt this drawing. The lighthouse didn’t have as much detail, in saying this it would be perfect for year 6 students.
Drawing Activity: Final face drawing This is a great guide for drawing faces, definitely one I will continue to use.
Drawing, Painting and Printing P16. Drawing with charcoal P17. Painting a color wheel P18. Scraffito and Monoprint examples P19. Screen Printing examples P20. Combining paint and crayon
Drawing, Painting, Printing This piece is a sample of experimenting with charcoal, it outlines the different techniques I experienced whilst experimenting. Great activity to use from years k – 6.
Drawing, Painting and Printing This is a sample of my color wheel. The wheel shows the primary, secondary and tertiary colors. This should be introduced from k and experimented with throughout primary school.
Drawing, Painting and Printing The top picture is a sample of sgraffito. This is a fun technique, the use of crayons on a piece of paper and painting over in black paint. I then used the end of my brush to make patterns which allowed the color to shine through. The second picture is a monoprint, whilst the sgraffito was wet I placed another piece of white paper over the print to copy the scribed in picture that I had drawn.
Drawing, Painting and Printing This is a sample of screen printing, I printed these for NADOC day at Driver Primary School 2011. Incorporating such an activity into the curriculum at any year level is beneficial, the use of color, stenciling and positive and negative color and will assist with indigenous perspective. Materials required: Print screen Paint Fabric Scraper Stencil
Drawing, Painting and Printing This piece I completed whilst working at Bees Creek Primary 2013. It was taken from the ‘Dynamic Arts Projects for Children’ by Denis M Logan. “ Blazing Banyan Tree” This activity works with negative space and combines paint and crayon . The materials: Paper Pencil Black tempera paint Oil pastels Method: Draw the Banyan Tree Paint the lines in black Color the space in colors blending the color of the crayons. This could be used as an indigenous perspective in the curriculum.
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabric P 22. Clay Modeling P 23. Mask P 24. Mosaic P 25. Collage P 26. Box construction P 27. Stain glass P 28. Paper weaving P 29. Pom pom P30. Cross stitch
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabric This is an example of clay activities and how they can be used throughout the curriculum in day to day teaching. The three main techniques are pinch, coil and slab.
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabric This is a sample of a face mask, It can be incorporated into the indigenous perspective in the curriculum. Materials; Paper plate Paper Paint Pipe cleaners Glitter Cotton balls
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This Mosaic is of 2 balloons. It has been made up of shells, buttons and beads. A n outline of the balloons was drawn before applying the materials. The use of PVA glue has been applied to stick the materials to the paper. This form of art can be introduced at any stage from K – 6 . It explores color, texture and visualization. The activity also explores positive and negative space.
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This piece is a collage, it’s a composition of pictures which represent my happy place. This can be introduced in the classroom with the use of magazines, using the pictures to tell a story.
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This is an example of 3D construction. All materials are recyclable from the kitchen. Paper plates Lids Alfoil Wool Craft paper Cardboard PVC glue This activity is can be used across the curriculum, an example of this is in literacy, designing a character for a story. The activity allows the students to use their imagination and creativity.
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This is an example of a stain glass window, exploring the use of different texture and color. Materials; Cellophane Pencils Paper PVC glue
Clay, Collage, Construction and fabrics This is a sample of paper weaving, It consisted of folding the large green sheets and treading the multi colors through one at a time. http://www.firstpalette.com/Craft_themes/Colors/Paper_Weaving/Paper_Weaving.html
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This is a pom pom. In constructing a pom pom you need the following materials: Wool, assortment of colors A 2 pieces of card Scissors Darning needle First cut the card into 2 circles 5 cm in diameter. Then cut another circle in the middle with a 2 cm diameter. Have wool cut into about 1 meter lengths changing color as you go. As the wool gets thicker use a darning needle to thread through. Once in a tight disc, use the scissors to cut along the edge. The URL of the procedure I used is as follows : http://www.kid-craft-central.com/pom-poms.html
Clay, Collage, Construction and Fabrics This is a sample of cross stitch. I competed this 10 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. I framed about 5 during this period. The white background is a fabric mesh consisting of little squares. The procedure requires a darning needle and different colored cotton. Whilst making a cross stitch you need to count the squares and there is a lot of hand eye co-ordination required. This particular pattern would be to difficult for lower primary students. In that case I would use a more simple pattern.
