Here is my finished piece. I was wondering today where all the birds go when there is a typhoon. They are sketched from a photo I took of a sculpture when I visited Taiwan.
Did you make some art today too? Post a picture of it in the comments section below, send me a photo or bring it to school tomorrow/next week. We would all love to see your work!
Good morning artists!
What are you doing at home today?
What does the wind and rain make you think of?
Have you had a peek up at the sky and looked out your window to see what is going on?
Take some time to make some art today! Paint, draw, sketch, collage and show me your art tomorrow. Here’s what I’ve been working on so far. I’ll let you see it when I am finished.
In this unit, artists will create a paper collage using various shapes to depict their favourite activity and the location it takes place.
We started off by looking at this artwork: Three Musicians, Pablo Picasso. We viewed this painting without knowing the title and used our Looking at Art poster to help us (you can find this on eClass). Ask your child what they discovered and learned about the painting.
As we practiced cutting out geometric shapes and creating pictures in our sketchbook, we checked for the following:
(Thumb up=I am doing a great job, Thumb sideways = I will keep practicing because I can do better.)
It’s the 40th Hong Kong Arts Festival this year (I am going by school years here)! Richard III was last weekend and it was brilliant. What I love about theatre is the intimacy of the performances and seeing how the story is just as much told by those offstage. In this production, I was most impressed by the simplicity of Tom Piper’s set design—walls with a series of doors which was seamlessly incorporated with the shadow projections and lighting. This shot doesn’t quite do it justice but gives you an idea of what it was like.
Another highlight was the percussion and keyboard transition between scenes. Reminded me of one of my all time favourite arts events in HK: Yamato which was part of the New Vision Arts Festival (this takes place every other year so look out for it in the fall of 2012).
An upcoming event you may be interested in taking your child to is WOW-World of Wearable Art.
Hong Kong Arts Festival advance booking is just around the corner: Oct 4, 2011. Have a look at everything that’s on offer this year.
