Fifth grade artists have been learning about BALANCE in the art room!
We learned about symmetrical and asymmetrical balance and learned about how different shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns can have a different visual weights. Our goal was to balance this visual weight using one type of balance.
We looked at the artist Camille Walala for some ABSTRACT inspiration. We also noticed how this artist shows unity in her artwork by sticking to a limited color palette and repeats these colors and patterns throughout her work.
Each artist worked with cardboard to create an abstract, low-relief sculpture that was balanced!
When they were finished cutting and gluing shapes together, they painted their sculptures, making sure to show balance with the color choices, too.
