Art + Food

What is your favorite meal? Why? Artists have been inspired by their food since the very beginning of art. Why do you think artists are interested in making art showing food?

Here are examples of how artists have shown food throughout history. What do you observe in these artworks?

We are taking inspiration from these artists and their artworks. You will make an artwork that shows your favorite meal or food to share with the people in your house. How will you create your meal or food? What art materials will you use? What will your favorite meal or food tell about you?

Artist: Alma Thomas, painter

Why do people make art? How does making art make life better? Alma Thomas was an African American abstract artist. She studied art in college and became an art teacher. She make art part time while she was teaching. When she retired from teaching, she focused on making art. She developed her signature style of using shapes and short brushstrokes to create abstract art. She was often inspired by nature and plants around her and used their colors and shapes in her paintings. She was the first African American woman to have a solo art exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art. What do you see in her artworks that remind you of nature?

What inspired you or gives you ideas for making art?

K, 1, and 2 with New Centers

Kindergarten is learning about our Centers one at a time. So far, they’ve learned about the Drawing, Sculpture, and Architecture Centers. Painting is next!

The 1st grade had a wonderful time learning how to use our Painting Center. They learned how to use paintbrushes with “wash it, wipe it, blot it, next color.”

The 2nd graders are painting, collaging, and drawing like pros! They’re loving all the creative freedom!

 

TAB- Update: First Two Weeks

Life is good in the art room! Students are learning about our new centers and we’ve opened up three out of eight so far: drawing, inspiration, and collage. We’ll be opening up a new one each week.

*New this year:  Each student has a portfolio to keep his/her artwork in. Students will choose which artworks will be displayed at school and which artworks to bring home.
