Art Club Project

I started an art club this year at school. I opened it up to 4th and 5th graders who have an interest in doing something extra in art. I have held one meeting so far at each school. Last week, the group that came worked fabulously together. We studied the artist David Hockney and looked at some of his photo collages and his painting of a chair. The girls took photos I had taken of a student chair and collaged them together. See the picture below.

Once this was done I did a quick outline of the image of the collaged chair and then they did it in oil pastels – with very little direction I might add. They created this fabulous drawing in about 25 minutes. Isn’t it awesome or is it just me and my prejudiced opinion?
