2D, 3D, Color, Shapes, Poetry and Music
Art Session #1: Yarn Bottles - Explore color and shapes in 3 dimensions. The Mexican Huichol Indians are the last North American tribe to still continue in their pre-Columbian traditions. They use yarn to decorate gourds, clothing and other items in rows or other patterns of color. We'll apply yarn to up-cycled bottles to create beautiful vases, containers or whatever your imagination takes you.
Shape-y Snack Break
Art Session #2: Chenille Stem Stitchery - World-renowned artist, Joan Miró is known for his child-like, playful art. For Miró, poetry and painting were the same. Using chenille stems and stitch canvas, students will create their own abstract, playful illustrations that they'll then be challenged to put into words of their own poem.
Visualizing Music in Color and Shape: A Group Project - Immerse yourself visually into a select set of music, recognizing patterns. Students will be challenged to identify what colors and shapes the sounds evoke. They will visualize the music as a group creating a single, colorful, patterned work created only with simple shapes.
