The sixth grade will be learning about linear/one-point perspective. This will be accomplished by studying the architecture of China (as seen in the famous handscroll: The Spring Festival Along the River, by Zhang Zeduan of the North Song Dynasty), pre-Colombian Mexico and South America, and Modern North America. The sixth grade students will then complete the still-life project which is currently decorating the art room.*
Grades 1 - 6 will study the Elements of Art (see individual postings under September): line, shape, space, color, and value (light and dark -i.e. shadows).

HERE is a fun chart where you can use your mouse to see how the colors change when mixed.
*The still-life created will be using monochromatic coloring (or close) and will look something like this:
