This month in art we have been studying the watercolor masterpieces of Winslow Homer and recreating what The Mayflower may have looked like! Students learned the history of the Mayflower and the story of the Pilgrims who came across the ocean in it. Watercolor techniques were learned and a wash was applied to depict the sky and the ocean water.
Ms. Isom's 5th grade class is writing stories on tall tale characters and we collaborated with this idea in art. The students learned about one point perspective and we drew a very tall character on their paper and then painted it in with background. This is what we are striving for with an arts integrated lesson! Collaboration and cross discipline learning.
