Self Expressions in Art:
Abstract vs. Realistic
Sixth grade students began the year discussing: abstract
vs. realistic works of art. Students were asked which they preferred and
why. Debate dialogue on both forms throughout the year will allow students to expand their
original conceptions of these art forms and begin to develop their own views and personal statements in art..
Our year long exploration into the Elements of Art: Line, Color, Value, Texture, Shape, Form and Space will also provide an additional area for artistic expression.
Artist Statement journals will allow students the opportunity to explore and extend a lesson to meet common core and visual arts standards..
