LS ART INQUIRY NEWSLETTER IV

Grade 4 students will be looking


at the human landscape and how
artists and designers create inside and
outside spaces. Students will use
additive and subtractive processes to
create sculptural forms in clay,
explore the concept of proportion and
describe how art plays a role in
reflecting life. Studio projects will
include creating a model of a dream
clubhouse, clay slab reliefs and an
interior design model.

Grade 5 students will discover


how societies communicate values in
public spaces. Students will use one
point perspective to create the illusion
of space, identify symbols for ideas
and compare different purposes for
creating a work of art. Projects will
include perspective drawings, creating
a symbol system and creating a model
for a public artwork.
