Dryden's Art Program-First Trimester News & Vote for Zeke
from Mrs. Fuglestad
Thank you for taking a few moments to find out what has been happening in your child's art class. There is so much more learning going on than a glimpse in the hallways would show since we do so many digital extensions to our learning with our class set of iPads.

VOTE FOR EZEKIEL100 FOR ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Zeke's Wishtree art was chosen randomly for the artist of the week contest. If he gets the most votes in his age category he and the art room will win art supplies. Vote Wednesday-Saturday. No login needed. Please share the link.

DO THE DRYDEN DOS:
5th grade Fugleflick Filmmakers finished their school climate film,  Do the Dryden Dos. This movie will be shared with our Dryden students and entered into film festivals and student video contests where available. See the post with karaoke music and lyrics. Go directly to the movie (2mins).

ART ROOM FUNDRAISERS ON DONORSCHOOSE.ORG:
Please consider donating to one or both of our 
Dryden Art Room projects on Donor’s Choose, a place where teachers post projects that education supporters can help fund with tax-deductible donations.

ARTSONIA NOW ALLOWS VIDEO: This year Artsonia began hosting student video and animations in individual portfolios. I went back into my digital archives and uploaded over 500 videos to student accounts from the last couple of years.
Please explore your child’s portfolios and see their transdigital artwork.
 
Just for Kindergarten

Artsonia Art Gallery - Digital Butterflies
Kindergarteners mixed the three primary colors to make a symmetrical design that had hints of the secondary colors. Then they used their imaginations and the magic of green screen to pretend to be the body of the butterfly they created. 
Learn how they were made:

Just for 2nd Grade
Artsonia Art Gallery - Tree Silhouette
2nd grade students learned to draw a tree with "V"s inspired by the Wishtree and Giving Tree books. 
Artsonia Art Gallery - Making a Wish 
2nd graders posed in front of 
green screen pretending that they were under the Wishtree making a wish. They learned how to make their photo into a silhouette and digitally collaged it into their tree silhouette paintings on our iPads using the Superimpose app. You can read their artist statements to find out about their wishes.
Artsonia Art Gallery - Percolated Tree Silhouettes 
Students learned how to abstract their art in an image filter app called, The Percolator. This gave students a chance to practice uploading art directly to their digital portfolio.

Just for 3rd Grade
ARt Color Wheels #DotDay18 - Dryden Art
Third graders prepped their optical illusion color wheel paintings on a Quiver Dot day sheet. They didn’t realize until we took out the iPads that they had been working with a sheet that triggers augmented reality illusions. View my post to see the class exploring their color wheel via AR. https://drydenart.weebly.com/fugleblog/art-color-wheels-dotday18
Artsonia Art Gallery - Op Art Color Wheel with Rotational Symmetry
3rd graders learned about the color wheel, complementary colors, pattern, and optical illusions as they created these rotationally symmetrical designs.
Students are using their color wheels for an animation lesson where they learn about rotation and relative size as they appear to fall into their art. View some completed movies here:
