5th graders started their first individual project today -
CIRCLE WEAVING! Before starting, we took notes on the basics of the COLOR WHEEL as a review. This project will highlight the color scheme of ANALOGOUS colors, which we call "3 neighbors" to simplify the concept. The background of the circle weaving was painted on a paper plate with an analogous color scheme of choice. Progress can be seen in the photos below (click to enlarge!). Next, students will add detail to the plates using neon oil pastel to create interest! I can't wait to see the final results!
5th Graders are working their way through a radial weaving project using a simple paper plate and yarn. Even with some stress, I know they are going to turn out well! The one pictured left is cruising in the right direction.
When complete, they will all be unique masterpieces, like the examples below!
