K students at my school have converted a classroom into a gallery to display artwork they have done for their unit entitled, “The Artist In Me.” As the teachers state:
This unit introduces and gives children opportunities to explore a variety of artistic media including visual art, dramatic and musical forms and dance. They are encouraged to explore and communicate ways in which artists, including themselves, express ideas and feelings. Children are involved in the selection of work from this unit to display in the kindergarten gallery.
Since we are a PYP school, their central idea is “People use many different forms of expresion to convey their uniqueness.”
The work is excellent and I congratulate the teachers for their efforts! They studied the elements of art, artists such as Klimt, VanGogh, Mondrian, Louise Nevelson, Sumie brushwork, sculpture and whole lot more.
Below is an Animoto slideshow of the gallery work and the Elements of Art video I made with the students for the unit (which I have posted here before). You may also click here to see the photos on Flickr.
