Art Club has started back up and in full swing! The sign up list only allotted for 30 names, along with a reserve list of another 30 names for replacements when students inevitably drop out, plus the extra added 15 names of kids that still wanted in before I could take the sign up lists down, I’d say Art Club is pretty popular!
Our first meeting was last week and I decided that we would get a heavy dose of art history this year. So when I found this graphic, I thought it would be perfect to follow and have an awesome time line by the end of the year.
So we got started with the first art ever discovered, The Cave Paintings of Lascaux! We watched a video and then made some connections to where they’d seen cave paintings. (The Croods) Then we taped paper under the tables and with limited palettes and freedom to paint stick figures and their hands (which they are never, never, never allowed to do during art class) the room was HUMMING with excitement!
