Student Art: (coming soon)
Students use patterns to fill these cats. This Fugleflick, Repeat, talks about line, color, and shape pattern. See my students working while listening to this music video.

Digital Version of this lesson:
I have THRILLING news for many Dryden Students today! I was interviewed by Alyson Stamos of Natural Child World Magazine about Dryden's Art Program towards the end of the school year thanks to the recommendation of Jack Tovey, art instructor/digital media specialist and Amanda Armstrong, Program Coordinator for Erikson Institute's TEC Center.
The article talks about how our students use digital media and devices to create art, shows six of my second grader's digital abstract cats in the style of Laurel Birch, and four of our fourth grader's Wish for the World images.
(More ideas on my Creating on iPads page)
Second graders had a chance to explore the the beautiful abstract cats of artist, Laurel Birch both physically and digitally.
They drew a cat in her style over two class periods as we talked about her artistic choices that made her work abstract.

Then I took digital images of these sketches and put them both on Artsonia where students were able to save them into their iPads. They added a layer over their sketch to retrace, paint, and decorate a digital abstract painting in the style of Laurel Birch using Sketchbook express. View all digital painting here.
One class even had enough time to revisit their original sketches to paint them physically!
View the these paintings here.
