Hi, I am an artist, wife, mom, gamer and the Elementary Art Educator at Donald Elementary, a sweet and wonderful school in Flower Mound, TX (outside of Dallas). This is a great place to see how we are integrating studio habits with technology and interdisciplinary connections. I also love to share my "wisdom" (Re: Experiences. From mistakes.) about teaching Elementary Art. I love what I do, and I've been doing it for a long time. Creating and teaching Art is what I live for. Enjoy.

One point perspective: Flying Boxes

5th grade: Flying Boxes

This year, my students have demanded we focus on Observational Drawing Skills. Of course, this means introducing and reviewing the Laws of Perspective (which I start in Kinder--overlapping, horizon line, etc. Right?)

love love love teaching 1 point perspective! Once the kids get it, the glow on their faces is priceless.

Guiding Idea: Lines can create depth. Students used geometric lines to create flying or infinity boxes. They used Zentangles to create the shading. They could add color if desired.

Dylan is quite happy.
Students used Zentangles to fill in their value.

When they finished, they took pictures of their art with Snapseed for their e-portfolios, and then experimented with filters to manipulate their creation.

ooohhhh how coooooooool!
