Fourth graders created these "Artists' Eyes" on their first day of the year in art. As prompts, I asked them (and wrote on the board): How do you think artists see the world differently? How do you see the world? What do you see that makes you want to create artwork? The results are always so individual and so unique.
The textured, shaded background on this one makes the carefully outlined details stand out. The double rainbow is like a reflection, and the symmetry creates a shape like the iris of the eye.
The eyelashes are transformed into grass, which is lovely addition to the nature theme in this eye! The pupil is an adorable puppy.
I was so impressed with the effort this student made to create detail, and smooth, thorough coloring. The color choices are vibrant and daring!
Wow! There's so much to see here- from the dramatic zig-zags to the blended colors and the movement of all the different patterns in combination. The artist was careful to explain to me that the scribbles were actually on purpose, to show that that's ok sometimes.
