Back to school fun and learning, while developing skills in Visual Arts!
Drawing contours and form contours while exploring line and enjoying nature on a beautiful September day!
Converging lines in a one-point perspective of Yonge Street.
While we were outside sketching, the students were overjoyed by the support of passing vehicles who honked their horns. It was a constant beeping by school buses, trucks, and cars who honked and gave signs of cheer to which the students responded by waving cheerfully. The above photo shows a quiet moment at the beginning of our study.
In our classroom discussion, we created a collaborative list describing the benefits of engaging in the visual arts.
Some of those benefits include: “we improve our confidence and concentration; we develop our observation skills, creative skills, communication skills, social skills, collaborative skills and research skills; and, we learn to be more open-minded and to be risk-takers.”
