During the first part of the class, students will get familiarized with exceptional portraits by 16th century Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. I will introduce some of the paintings while telling a story, engaging children in discussions about the paintings, and playing "I Spy" game. Students will learn (or review) what artists do and what kind of painting is called "portrait". In a second part of the class, students will make a craft inspired by the portraits they've been introduced to....
Students will: • learn some facts about Arcimboldo • learn (or review) what artists do and what type of painting is called "portrait" • practice their observation skills • exercise their fine motor skills while working on an art project
Materials for Craft: • Cardboard about 10 X 10 inches • Pencil • 2 - 4 short pine branches • 1 big pinecone • A few leaves or some blades of grass • 2 acorn cupules (acorn “cups”) • Short twigs • Any other light weighted natural materials • Playdough • Glue • Scotch tape
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For the craft portion of the class, parental help is recommended for younger students.
