  • Roald Dahl Art Project

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 5/31/2020


    Hello fifth grade. This will be the last art project I will post for the school year. If you have not turned some projects in, you still have time to submit them. All projects are due by June 10th. I hope you all have a happy and healthy summer. See you all in the fall.

    Roald Dahl: Famous quotes

    I really like the author Roald Dahl. One of my favorite books he wrote is the BFG. Look on the internet for some of his famous quotes and pick one that you really like. Then find a picture from a book or movie that compliments the quote. Try to recreate the image by drawing it and incorporating your quote.  Click Here to see powerpoint project examples and ideas.

  • One Point Perspective Drawing

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 5/17/2020

    One Point Perspective

    Draw a City with One Point Perspective · Art Projects for Kids

    What is One Point Perspective? One point perspective is a drawing method that shows how things appear to get smaller as they get further away, converging towards a single 'vanishing point' on the horizon line. It is a way of drawing objects upon a flat piece of paper (or other drawing surface) so that they look three-dimensional and realistic.

    There is also two and three point perspective. We will not do a project on that, but watch the short video to get a good idea of what it is. Click Here

    Here is another really good video with an overall introduction of Perspective drawing. Click Here

    For the project, watch the video and follow along with the step by step instructions. Do not skip ahead, or you will miss some important steps. Click Here Please use a ruler when drawing straight lines.

    If you prefer to not watch the video while you make your project, Click Here for a website with directions you can follow. Each step is explained and with images. Please use a ruler when drawing straight lines.

    When you finish the drawing, color it in with any medium of your choice. Have fun!

  • Radial Symmetry Name Design

    Radial Symmetry Name Design

    L.B. EW1

    I know many of you probably saw these in the hall not too long ago. These are really fun to make and always turn out really interesting. If you are not careful to follow each step correctly, it can turn out all wrong and you may need to do a few tries until you get the hang of it. That is okay, you will get it. Don't give up. 

    First of all, what is symmetry? Symmetry is when something is exactly the same on the other side. For example, a butterfly is symmetrical

    What is radial symmetry? Radial Symmetry is where identical parts are arranged in a circular fashion around a central axis. A starfish has radial symmetry; a butterfly does not.

    You will need a square paper. Copy paper is fine, just cut the length to be 8 1/2 inches to match the width. Also I would like you to use your first or last name for your word. Drawing in bubble letters is the best.

    I like this website best for instructions: Click Here

    This website gives a video tutorial, but I think it is harder when you use a separate triangle to trace: Click Here

    Please color your finished drawing making it symmetrical. For example if your name has an L in it, you would color the L the same color in each triangle. Color the background, and make that symmetrical as well. Please message me if you have any questions or need help. I hope you enjoy making these.

  • Storyboard

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 5/3/2020

    Choose one of the assignements from fifth grade to make for this week. Do you like comic books? Do you like drawing cartoons? If so, you might love making a storyboard. 

    Click Here to learn what a storyboard is and how to make your own. 

    Making a storyboard is fun, but like writing a story, it may take many drafts until your final copy is complete. I can't wait to see what you make!

  • Warm and Cool color Circle Tree Drawing

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 4/13/2020

    Fifth Grade:

    This is another drawing project, yet you will practice drawing with a grid. Print the grid in the PDF below. If you are not able to print it. You can create your own grid using a rooler and 1 inch squares. You should be familiar with this because we made a grid for our self-portraits not too long ago. While looking at the steps in the tree drawing try to draw your lines for the branches and trunk in the same squares and in the same location you see in handout. After you have drawn your tree, you should use crayons or colored pencils to color it in. Please color inside the circle with warm colors: Red yellow and orange or any shade of those three colors. Please color the background with cool colors: blue, green and violet or any shade of those three colors.  I look forward to seeing your finished Tree.

  • Doodle Drawing

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 4/7/2020

    Hello fifth grade! I hope you are all doing well. I miss you all. I will be adding a project once a week to keep your creative minds working. I know so many of you enjoy drawing, and you are really good at it. This project  is a doodle drawing that I think you will like. (Click the link below)The key is to not let any of your lines touch or overlap. The shapes you make can be organic (made up) or geometric (shapes you can name). If you have a sketch book, this would be a great addition to it. I am sure not one students will look like the other. After you are finished e-mail me your results and I will upload it on this webpage for everyone to see! I look forward to seeing your oddles of doodles.
