Third grade artists are working on a big collaborative project. We have been inspired by the work of Elizabeth Murray. We noticed how large, organic shapes make up her work. Some of us were reminded of graffiti art, while others saw things from everyday life. We made our own organic shapes and learned about making tints. A tint is made when you add white to a color. The next step is adding in lines and patterns to create a visual rhythm. We learned about how to use the color wheel to choose colors that will POP! Here is some work in progress. Check back soon to see how all of the parts come together!
