Third graders learned how to make objects look 3-dimensional through using the various tint, tone, and shade values. Using this knowledge, they went on to create 3d planets to add to their space backgrounds. Some chose to draw the planet they are studying in class, and some chose to try a new one out for this project.
Since the third grade classes are learning about planets and outer space, I decided to let them be the teachers and teach Ms. K something new! This week we talked about outer space and began the background for our project. We noticed how nebulas and galaxies start really bright (tints) and spread out getting darker and darker (tones and shades).
The 3rd grade spooky architecture is up! 3rd graders were able to finish their pictures this week, and they are now hanging in the Windsor commons! The monochromatic backgrounds make it look as if the sun is setting behind these spooky houses. They look so cool!
In 3rd grade our spooky architecture is almost done being "built." After adding some final details, the 3rd graders went over their pencil lines with metallic markers to make the architectural lines really pop! All that's left to do is to attach the buildings to our monochromatic backgrounds.
