Fourth Grade has been busy with a clay proposal, as well as working on American Indian artist style self portraits.
Students had to draw and write a short proposal of a 3D clay project, students chose something important to them, while having the freedom to create (almost) anything.

Students in fourth grade are also in the process of creating a Frank Big Bear style self portrait. Frank Big Bear is a Minnesotan artist from the White Earth Reservation.
He uses an interesting style using complimentary colors and a modified grid to create an interesting color scheme and portrait.
Students first draw a large face, some features may be exaggerated. They then draw random lines over the face to make a organic grid. Every new line they run into, is a new color. Each color should be somewhere near their complimentary color.
Finished work coming soon!
