Art Lessons from Mrs. Glennon

  • Kindergarten- 2nd grades

    Go to this Art Institute of Chicago website and download five coloring pages of the work of the artists Edward Hopper (Nighthawks), Georges Seurat (A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte), Grant Wood (American Gothic), Hokusai (Under the Wave off Kanagawa), and Vincent Van Gogh (Bedroom at Arles). All of these are at the Art Institute, and most will be familiar to you. As you color, it will be easy for you to see the little details in these five historical paintings. Choose to reproduce them as they were originally, or use your own style of coloring.
    Another fun project to check out is a LEGO way of creating a self-portrait.  If you have lots of LEGOs, and a little bit of time to spend in front of a mirror, you can take part in this great activity. Go HERE to see how this little girl made her portrait.
  • 3rd, 4th and 5th grades

    Go to this Art Institute of Chicago website and download five coloring pages of the work of the artists Edward Hopper (Nighthawks), Georges Seurat (A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte), Grant Wood (American Gothic), Hokusai (Under the Wave off Kanagawa), and Vincent Van Gogh (Bedroom at Arles). All of these are at the Art Institute and should be familiar to you. As you color, it will be easy for you to see the little details in these five historical paintings. Choose to reproduce them as they were originally, or use your own style of coloring.
    We’ve talked about trying to make a landscape have depth so that we can see into the land. We do that by including foreground, middle ground, and background in the details of the landscape. By zigzagging the lines back and forth at the beginning of the drawing, you can establish space.  Whatever you want to put into the front of the drawing should be large. The midpoint will be medium-sized and the back will have the smallest items. Look at THIS website to get simple instructions on how to give a landscape perspective.
  • 6th, 7th and 8th grades
The Orland Park Library is creating a virtual art gallery for grades 6 through 12. You (6th-8th), or an older brother or sister (freshman-senior) could digitally contribute any of your current or past artworks. That could be a photo or a scan of something we have done in school, or whatever you have done at home. Each teen can submit up to three pieces. Please read the rules for submission on their website. I will look forward to seeing some of your artworks in the gallery.
Our normal curriculum would have included some printmaking.  If you would like to try your hand at a monoprint (making only one image, not multiples), go to THIS page to learn about mono-printing with simple household items and some paint (craft acrylics or tempera will work) Have fun! If you do some great prints, send them to the virtual gallery at the Orland Library (see above).
