Art Enrichment- Week 5

Kindergarten
3D is short for the word three- dimensional. That means that the shape is not flat, and you are able to rotate the object to see all of its sides.

Each 3D shape has a face. But not a face like you and me! The face of a 3D shape is where it “sits” if you were to place it onto a table. The face of a 3D shape is either a circle or a square.

Materials:
1 piece of construction paper
Tape 
Scavenger hunt items

 Instructions
1) Explore around your house, or outside and find these 3D shapes
1) Sphere
2) Cone
3) Cube
4) Cylinder 

  • You might need to get very creative when searching for these. The cone was the hardest for me to find!

2) Please tally, or write down the objects you find.
3) When you are finished, please choose one of each shape (cone, cylinder, sphere, cube) that you would like to use for the second part of our project. It’s important to choose the smaller objects you found.
4) Next, take your construction paper, and your objects and head outside! 
5) Find a spot that stays sunny for long periods of the day. Simply place your construction paper on a solid surface and place your objects on top.

6) Your objects should be spaced out and be sure you sit them on their face!
7) When time is up, simply remove your objects from the paper!
8) Surprise! Please let me know what you see! What 3D has a different face?

First and Second Grade

Printmaking is used by many artists. It is the process of transferring an image from one surface to another. Those surfaces are mainly paper or fabric.

We used printmaking last week with leaves and ink from markers but this week, we will be printmaking using…. The sun! 
What you will need:

Colored construction paper ( the darker colors work best)
Items from inside or outside
Tape

Instructions
1) Go around your house, or outside and collect items you wish to use
2) Find a place that stays sunny for the majority of the day, and place the paper down onto a solid surface. Move around your items until you are happy with their position.
3) You will need tape to secure the items to the paper and the paper to your surface. We don’t want your paper and items blowing away!
4) Once you are happy with where your items are, we wait!
5) Printing with the sun requires time, you'll need to wait  4-6 hours!
6) Once time is up, gently remove your items and the tape
7) Surprise!

Third and Fourth Grade
Printmaking is used by many artists. It is the process of transferring an image from one surface to another. Those surfaces are mainly paper or fabric. There are many different ways to create a print and today we will be using... the sun!

The process of printing with the sun is called a Cyanotype. It involves treating paper with a solution (mixture of chemicals) and then exposing it to sunlight for 10-20 minutes. We are going to create our own version of a Cyanotype.

What you will need:
Colored construction paper ( the darker colors work best)
leaves, flowers, sticks, or other items from outside
Tape
Instructions
1) Head outside with your paper and tape and collect other items you wish to use.
2) Find a place that stays sunny for the majority of the day, and place the paper down onto a solid surface.
3) Move around your items to create a face. You can be as creative or silly as you'd like!
4) You will need tape to secure the items to the paper and the paper to your surface. We don’t want your paper and items blowing away!
5) Once you are happy with where your items are, we wait!
6) Printing with the sun requires time, so go enjoy the sun and come back within 4-6 hours!
7) Once time is up, gently remove your items and the tape.
8) Surprise!
