while addressing positive and negative shapes and 3d space, of course:)
We reviewed how we created 3d space and volume in our drawings from last week and then I shared a painting done by Patty Baker.
Then we got working. Bumpy line for the ground, tall to small telephone poles, wires, and birds. WHen we drew the birds I showed them a few ways to do them from different angles. Students choose where they wanted each bird to go. We then filled in the ground and birds with black and traced the lines.
We used cake temperas to add color to the sunset sky. Students could use any of the warm or color colors. I emphasized that if their birds disappeared because a color was too dark, to add more water to that area and spread the color out to bring the bird back.
