I love Idan's bold colours and abstract shapes!
It reminds me of the expressionist art of Franz Marc!
We have just started the new school year. I have a gorgeous Year 3 class and to start the year we made these portraits. This cute idea came from: http://ksmaghini.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/the-connoisseur-by-norman-rockwell.html
Lesson Materials (per student):
1 sheet A3 white art paper
1 coloured photo of themselves facing away from you
coloured oil pastels
watercolour paints, brushes, water
1. With step-by-step modelling, students use their ruler and lead pencil to draw the artwork frame, floor line and checkerboard floor.
2. Students use the watercolours to paint the wall, floor and art frame.
3. Students use the oil pastels to create the artwork. I modelled on the board first, explaining and demonstrating how students could choose different tones and shades of the same colour (e.g. white into light blue into dark blue, or yellow into orange into red). I also emphasised pressing firmly and ensuring there were no white gaps left.
4. Students paste their photo onto their artwork.
