Gr. 3-5 Symbolism Art

Gr. 3, 4, and 5 have been separately creating art that symbolizes meaning. Gr. 3 and 4 have been concentrating on lines and shapes, while Grade 5 focused on symbolism in traditional art and culture. After many enlightening discussions, the students learned that symbolism makes art more interesting and allows the artist to express more about themselves and their feelings. As a result, they have a wide variety of mysterious artworks that take inspiration from Joan Miro, Romare Beardon, Australian Aboriginal culture, and West African culture, which were displayed in the Kawanabe Room and the East Lobby this week.
