Fifth Graders have been working on choosing an artist to study in Technology, Art and Library. They used The Metropolitan Museum of Art site to find artists and styles of art. Then they took a virtual tour of the National Museum of Natural History to prepare to creating their own museum in PowerPoint. Lastly, the students visit a site to learn about one point perspective in landscapes at Learning about Landscapes. After learning about landscapes, the students create their own and describe the various parts of it: middle ground, foreground, and background. This again, prepares them for creating their own museum.

Lots of learning is taking place in the lab about art and museums and there’s lots to come! Keep a look out for links to our finished work.
