For our first museum tour this new school year, we traveled to the Guggenheim Museum of Art!
Our Art Adventurers viewed the Guggenheim’s Artistic License & Basquiat exhibitions exploring lines, shapes and symbols, oh my!
It was all about abstract modern and contemporary art reviewing
our forms & sculptures with Giacometti;
geometric shapes, lines and patterns with Louise Nevelson; negative space, balance & color with Louise Bourgeois;
and finally, use of symbols, words and emotions with Basquiat.

SKETCHBOOK COVER DESIGNS-
We record our progress with lines, shapes and pictures throughout the semester in our sketchbooks. Today we decorated them by “shopping” for colors we liked and patterns/ textures that pleased us. We made choices about what went first, then overlapped: “Larger first/smaller last.”
Cutting made simple:
Step 1: Act like you’re shaking someone’s hand.
Step 2: Thumb in small hole (top.)Fingers in large hole (bottom.)
Step 3: Alligator eats AWAY from you!
Step 4: “Open shut them” – a song we sing. (Or The alligator is REALLY hungry.)Press forward.
Adult: hold the (thin) piece of paper -one hand on each side.
(Watch your fingers!)
Pull apart a bit to make it taught. This helps them be more successful!
Gluing made simple:
(with a brush or a gluestick):
1: take your paper you want to attach.
2: Turn it over.
3: Go around the edges.
4: “Cris-Cross” in the center.
5: Turn it over and attach.
Don’t worry that they turn their scissors “upside-down.” They haven’t stretched their “rotation” muscles yet.
We’re working on it!
