BLOG EXHIBITION DATE 2024
After studying the work of Eric Carle, we decided to create some cool looking fish, using space, shape, color, and texture to guide our choices. We saw that certain shapes in certain places made our audience see fish eyes or fins or bodies. You noticed that, when we put a tiny black circle on top of a slightly bigger white circle and then put those near the front of the fish body, people would see 'eyes'. It was fun to change the eye to different places and to see how unusual it looked in the 'wrong' space.
Later, we can transform these fish into a fun game to play at The Arts of March!! Check out your final fish in the gallery!
Well done, Prep!
With a career spanning 25 years, I have worked alongside children from infancy to 9th grade in a generalist classroom setting. To my delight and surprise, an opportunity arose for me to become an art teacher in 2015. My first year was a learning experience and I expect that will be the case with all the years to follow.
