Our 4th grade Farmingville artists are off to a great start this year. They have been exploring Expressionism and how Expressionist art tried to convey emotion and meaning rather than reality. Each artist had their own unique way of "expressing" their emotions in their art. In order to express emotion, the subjects are often distorted or exaggerated. At the same time colors are often vivid and shocking. We looked at Edvard Munch's "The Scream" and created out own scream inspired artwork using photography, digital media, paint and oil pastels.
To compliment our "Scream" project 4th grade artists created "I Am" poems and added color and interest using tertiary colors.
Here is a quick peek as to how our project progressed and some finished pieces.
