Summer Theme Week – Art History

Art History Week

  • Day 1: Piet Mondrian.Mondrian_CompRYB
  • Read Biography.
  • Watch video to view artwork.
  • Create a painting using Mondiran’s technique.  See project idea here (we will probably use canvas, black marker and paint):
  • Math connection: Graph the number of squares, rectangles, colors, corners, etc. in the finished projects.
  • Complete on-line painting.
  • Worksheet for younger students.
  • I will probably premake these cookies as a special surprise snack on our field trip day.
  • Day 4: Georgia O’Keeffered-poppy
  • Read “My Name is Georgia” by Jeanette Winter
  • Watch video
  • Go for a walk in the yard and collect objects.  Then draw or paint what was found.
  • Another project idea – Flower Drawings
  • Write an Acrostic Poem using Georgia O’Keeffe
  • Make flower cookies using a cookie cutter 0r cut sandwiches into flower shapes.
  • Day 5: Visit the Art Museum: We are blessed to be close to the Philadelphia Art Museum.  Kids under 14 are free.  Since my kids are young, I won’t be taking them through the whole museum, just the parts that apply to what we were learning this week.  I will also bring some drawing supplies along so we can draw outside the museum while we eat a picnic lunch.

Do I have any art enthusiasts out there that will be trying out “Art History Week” this summer?
