Thank you to all who came along on this distance learning art adventure with me! Your weekly artwork and messages have made this time away from Eastside so much easier. I love you and miss you all so, so much and can't wait to be back in the art room with you! Continue making art and sharing it with me! You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep art in your heart!
Create a Card!
For your last art assignment of the year, I would like you to create a card for someone who works at Eastside. We didn't get to say our goodbyes like we normally do at the end of the year, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to do that!
Make a card for a teacher, a custodian, an administrator, a paraprofessional, anyone! Draw pictures, tell them why you appreciate them, tell them why you miss them. I know that your art and your words will bring such joy! Your Eastside family misses you so much!
Send a picture of the card to email@example.com and bring your card to Eastside when you turn in your packet. Make sure your card says who it is for. We will make sure it gets to the right person!
The hospital is looking for signs that show our support for our first responders. Include positive messages for our first responders and your beautiful pictures! If you would like to participate, please have signs to Eastside by noon of Friday, May 15th.
Challenge: Collect as many different textures as you can!
Medium: Crayon on paper
Texture is how something feels. Textures are rough, bumpy, gritty, smooth, etc.
Collect your textures with crayon rubbing. Place a texture under a piece of paper and then rub a crayon over the top of the paper. What kinds of texture do you think will show up best on the paper?
Work in small areas so that you can fit many textures on your paper. Try using a different color for each texture. Maybe even take the challenge outside and see what you can find. Make it a competition if you have siblings!
Your Art Challenge this week is to go back and complete an art assignment. I know that many of you are just visiting this site for the first time after getting the letter in your art portfolio, and I want to give you the opportunity to catch up a bit. You can choose to finish an artwork we began in class, but didn't have time to finish, or you can scroll back on this website and find a distance learning project that you have not yet made! If you have completed everything, great job! You just have the one art assignment this week.
Send pictures of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Have fun playing an art scavenger hunt game with your friends and Mrs. Pinaire on Tuesday, May 12th at 1:00! Email me at email@example.com for the link! Hope to see you there!
I know some fifth grade students did not have time to go back and complete their weaving this school year, but I still want you to have the information to finish! This was a special project just for you! Your weaving can be finished at any point. You do not need to weave more yarn.
Remember, your weaving can completely fall apart after it has been cut and before it is tied. Do not pick it up until everything is tied.
Send pictures of your finished weaving to firstname.lastname@example.org
On Monday (5/4), you were able to take all of your artwork home! For your art challenge this week, I want you to take a picture holding your favorite artwork from this year and send it to email@example.com. Bonus points if you tell why it was your favorite! If one of your favorite artworks was left unfinished, now you can complete it at home.
If you noticed that a piece of artwork in your portfolio was missing, don't worry! I have it and it will be in our Night of the Arts early next school year. After the art show, it will be returned to you.
Here are some of the fun things we created this year! I hope you love your work as much as I do!
From Mrs. Pinaire
