The 5th grade students learn about abstract art through a power point. We looked at many different examples of abstract are and talked about how abstract art doesn’t necessarily have to look like anything. What a piece of abstract art looks like to one person, might look like something completely different to another person. We also learned about sculpture and 3-dimensional artwork. The 5th graders created their own abstract sculpture using hangers, a block of wood, a nylon and some paint. When the students were ready to paint we reviewed what a pattern is and they had to create patterns to unify their sculpture.
