August Art Project For Grades 1 - 3


We looked at some examples of Abstract Pastel Artworks and then made our own.  First we made abstract lines with glue.  Abstract lines do not look like something real.  They are just a design.  After the glue dried, we colored inside of the lines with pastels.  Pastels are like chalk.  It was fun to see the colored construction paper show under the clear dried glue lines.

Do you like making abstract artwork (doesn't look like something real), realistic artwork (looks like something real), or both?  Why?

  2. I like doing both abstract and realistic art. It really depends on what I'm thinking and feeling. If I'm happy, excited or laughing out loud and I draw then I will probably draw a cute dog or a monkey swinging through the trees. Realistic. If I'm mad, confused, sad, or generally unhappy, Then i will most likely draw some weird design in really dark color.

  3. I like to make abstract art because all you have to do is draw a weird shape and then go from there. It can be many different shapes, colors, sizes, or many more.

  4. I enjoy the abstract unreal art . It is a way that many people can show their sprit and the way that their imagination works. Art is a great special to have we can show what we are thinking and how we felt

  8. I enjoy making realistic artwork more than abstract because if I am drawing clouds in the sky, I compare the clouds on the paper to the clouds in the sky.

  11. I like making both realistic art and abstract art. I like making realistic art, because you can hang it up on your wall, and people will be able to say "Oh, thats a cat!" or something. Also, it is easier to create realistic art because you have reference from other things, and you know how its supposed to turn out. Also, abstract art could also turn out horrible, or great, and it is just a game of chance. However, I like abstract art, because it is more fun to create. This is because, if you are drawing a cat, you cannot add random stripes all over the paper, but with abstract art you can.
