Third-grade Robert Indiana

3rd graders are studying the art of Robert Indiana. They noticed how he used letters and numbers as art at a time when people did not see those things as such. We used his word love, and other words such as hope and joy in our art. We thought about the use of warm and cool colors and pattern to create these wonderful artworks! 

Learning Goals: 
I can identify the art of Robert Indiana. 
I can distinguish between warm and cool colors. I can emboss metal patterns. 
I can create block lettering like Robert Indiana.
I can create a collage.

I can identify Mary Cassatt's impressionistic art.
I can create a value scale.
I can draw my self portrait.
I can create light and shadow in my portrait.
