Stay tuned! Art with Ms. Bagdziunas will continue virtually online. A website is in the works that students, parents and guardians can check for new assignments, articles, printables, tutorials, contest information, and more!
We may not be able to meet in person, but there are countless ways to enjoy, create, and learn about art, and Ms. B. will share ideas and expertise from afar. Once an Art Class website is online and the system for collecting students’ work is established, families will receive the update.
The arts can be especially therapeutic and enriching. We highly encourage the students to pursue their art interests. Whether it is drawing, painting, computer art, making movies, building with Lego, playing instruments, gardening… keep doing it and practicing! The more one practices, the more experienced one becomes, and experience will improve skills. If possible, try new things! Remember that every expert was once a beginner.
*ART CHALLENGE ALERT*
Ms. B. has an art challenge for everyone in all grades this week!
Objective: Please look around your home and pick out three different objects to draw. Draw three (3) things from observation this week.
Here are some ideas- your favorite toy or stuffed animal, flowers, a hat, shoes, your bike, a clock, houseplants, your family member’s mug, jewelry, a chair, fruit, a statue, the lamp in your bedroom… anything you would like to draw! (*Please nothing violent though! No guns or weapons.)
Choose a pencil or pen, and draw on any type of paper.
Look carefully at the models you chose to draw. Observe the details and do your best to draw what you see. Take your time, give yourself at least 10 minutes per drawing, with breaks in between.
Why is this good to do? Drawing what you see in front of you helps you to draw better and is good for your hand and brain. You will notice things you did not notice before. Also your drawings from your imagination will improve!
Hang on to your three drawings, and stay tuned for instructions on how to show Ms. Bagdziunas.
Have fun with this week’s challenge!
