A couple of weeks ago I went with a friend to the Rosamund Felsen Gallery at Bergamot Station here in Santa Monica to see Kim MacConnel's paintings. The colors, the lines, the design -- FABULOUS!! What a great inspiration! MacConnel is a San Diego artist and I am so happy to have discovered his work!
So, using this inspiration, this week 2nd graders will be creating abstract dimensional collages using warm and cool colors. I have a collection of images from Google that I will be sharing with them, along with paintings by Kim MacConnel on display here. Students will make warm and cool mini-art using markers and then arrange them (overlapping) on a black illustration board.
