Ephemeral Art Explorations

August-June

Join us as we explore the natural world, and discover how nature can be both our inspiration and our canvas!

Standards:

  • K- VA.7PE Explore their environments and experiences for artmaking ideas.
  • K- K.MD.1 Identify and describe measurable attributes (length, weight, and height) of a single object using vocabulary terms such as long/short, heavy/light, or tall/short.
  • 1st- 2.VA.2PE Explore and describe how a selected art object was made.
  • 1st– 1.9. Collaboration requires group members to respect the rights and opinions of others.
  • 2nd- 2.VA.3PE Compare the form, materials and techniques in selected works of art using descriptive language.
  • 2nd- 2.G.1 Recognize and identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons based on the number of sides or vertices. Recognize and identify cubes, rectangular prisms, cones, and cylinders.
  • 3rd- VA.3.4PR Create artworks that demonstrate awareness of two- and three-dimensional space.
  • 3rd- 2. Primary and secondary sources can be used to show change over time.
  • 4th- 4.VA.3PR Generate ideas and employ a variety of strategies to solve visual problems.
  • 4th- SS.12 People have modified the environment throughout history resulting in both positive and negative consequences in Ohio and the United States.
  • 5th- 5.VA.5PR During collaborative artmaking experiences, demonstrate respect and support for peer ideas and creativity.
  • 5th- SL.5.1 Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 5 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
  • 6th- 6.VA.1PR Demonstrate technical skill and craftsmanship in the use of materials, tools and technology to solve an artistic problem.
  • 6th- SWK Grade 6-8: Science is a way of knowing about the world around us based on evidence from experimentation and observations.
  • 7th- 7.VA.1PR Select, organize and manipulate skills, elements and techniques appropriate to the art form when making art.
  • 7th- SWK Grade 6-8: Science is a way of knowing about the world around us based on evidence from experimentation and observations.
  • 8th- 8.VA.1RE Speculate about an artist’s intentions and message in a work using relevant references to the work.
  • 8th- SWK Grade 6-8: Science is a way of knowing about the world around us based on evidence from experimentation and observations.

Vocabulary:

Environment, ephemeral, Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Shilling, sustainability, manipulate
