Understanding Non Objective Works

Students looked at works by Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky and contemporary American artist Moe Brooker and then, while listening to soft jazz, designed their own non-objective piece infusing self expression and emotional content into the work.

Kandinsky once said "Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential." Students considered their own purpose in creating meaningful work.

Then students completed homework assignment using at least five shapes to demonstrate"vanishing point" and "one point perspective".  Demonstration was completed by teacher in class on Oct 25th and 26th.   Homework due Oct 29th and Oct 30th.

    After several direct instruct lessons and practice sessions, students moved in the school hallway and applied the concepts to a drawing. Students selected the section of the hallway to complete. At the point of these photos students have moved back into the classroom and are retracing their own lines with sharpie.
