Students in Grade 1/2 are wrapping up their first unit of inquiry on Artists’ Expression. Throughout this unit, students learned about a different artist each week. We learned about Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Keith Haring, Yahoo Kusama, Alexander Calder, and Hannah Hoch. We explored different mediums, tools, and types of artwork. Each time we learned about a new artist, we focused on expressing ourselves, or communicating a message. As our summative assessment, we wrote an autobiography about ourselves as artists.
We got our hands messy, enjoyed the process, and had a lot of fun!
