Fifth graders have been working on contour line and looking at something to draw it. We looked at our shoes and recreated the bottom of our shoes. We drew with pencil lightly and then we traced with sharpie and wrote about where our shoes have taken us and where they will take us. We talked figuratively how this relates to soldiers and how their boots carry them all over the world and in all types of situations in the course of their service. We hope that these will make a beautiful display for our Veteran's day show.

Fourth graders looked at Optical Illusions and how they trick our eyes. We discussed how this is the over all goal of many artists because they want to make a 2D drawing appear to have the third dimension and appear to have form and depth. We looked at the American flag and we tried to create the illusion of space and depth. We were also made aware of how important light is to this process. We completed some shading and high lights in hopes to create the flag blowing freely in the wind.

I am also extremely excited to add CLUB CREATE to the list of opportunities provided to students at Harbins. Fourth and fifth graders that were interested in this artistic endeavor were given the opportunity to do so by completing an art application and a work of art. We will begin meeting this week and beginning our collaborative works in preparation for art shows that we hope to have take place outside the walls of Harbins. I am excited about this and hope the students gain more than even I expected when planning for it.
