Our Lancashire students made so much incredible art during our virtual art lessons on Schoology. Here are two virtual art galleries that highlight the work and projects created by students remotely!

This year Lancashire students have been traveling backwards in time learning about art from different time periods! Here is a visual timeline to help them remember all of the era's of art we have learned about and will learn about in chronological order.
(born November 15, 1920)
is an American painter widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects—pies, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogs—as well as for his landscapes and figure paintings. Thiebaud is associated with the pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culture, although his early works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists. Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects, and the well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.

Surrealism began as a philosophical movement that said the way to find truth in the world was through the subconscious mind and dreams, rather than through logical thought. The movement included many artists, poets, and writers who expressed their theories in their work.
The movement began in the mid-1920s in France and was born out of an earlier movement called Dadaism from Switzerland. It reached its peak in the 1930s.

2nd and 3rd grade students at Lancashire will build a deeper understanding of the roll math plays in the work of M. C. Escher and will create their own tessellation work of art! Students will have the opportunity to build their own tessellation or use an assistive tessellation building kit to help them sketch their tessellation pattern on an extra large piece of paper. After the building and designing process students will then have the opportunity to explore and experiment with permanent markers and watercolor colored pencils and markers. This lesson will tie in perfectly with a 3rd grade math unit they will have later on this year on tessellations in their homerooms!
Positive and negative space imagery inspired by the work of M. C. Escher and the book "It Looked Like Spilt Milk".
The understanding of positive and negative space is a tough one for kindergarten and 1st graders to grasp but once the information is acquired it has a huge impact on your students work moving forward. I'm thrilled to share two of my favorite books with our youngest artists at Lancashire! Round Trip by Ann Jonas is a book that is first read forward and then the book is turned upside down and read backwards. Each page has a secret hidden image hidden in it's negative space!
After reading and reflecting on our featured reading and featured artist students will create their own positive and negative space works of art! During this creative process we will focus on improving our cutting, gluing, and painting skills! After completing our work students will begin their first artist statements!

Abstract expressionism is a post–World War II art movement in American painting, developed in New York in the 1940s. It was the first specifically American movement to achieve international influence and put New York City at the center of the western art world, a role formerly filled by Paris.
What can we learn from our responses to art?
I can Statements
( K& 1st) I can describe what an image represents
(2nd & 3rd) I can speculate about processes an artist uses to create a work of art
(4th & 5th) I can compare responses to a work of art before and after working in similar media.
Ukraine & New Jersey/ America
was a Ukrainian-American Abstract Expressionist whose career started mid-life, at age 45. Even with an artistic career as brief as hers, Sobel is the first artist to use the drip painting technique which directly influenced Jackson Pollock.
(1912 – 1956)
Cody, Wyoming & New York City
Jackson Pollock is considered an Abstract Expressionist painter. He was the first "action painter", meaning that he would drip, pour, throw and splash his paint onto very large canvases which were often laid flat on the floor of his New York studio. Many say he would literally dance, as though in a trance, as he created his masterpieces. Pollock is widely considered the most challenging and influential American artist of the 20th century.
He is credited with painting one of the first recognized purely abstract works.In 1909 Kandinsky began to think that painting didn't need a particular subject, but that shapes and colors alone could be art. Over the next several years he would start to paint what would become known as Abstract Art. Kandinsky was one of the founding fathers of Abstract Art. Kandinsky felt that he could express feelings and music through colors and shapes in his paintings. For example, he thought that yellow had the crisp sound of a brass trumpet and that certain colors placed together could harmonize like chords on a piano. The shapes he was most interested in were the circle, triangle, and the square.
(1891 – 1978)
Georgia & Washington D.C.
was an Expressionist painter and art educator best known for her colorful abstract paintings. She lived and worked primarily in Washington, D.C. and The Washington Post described her as a force in the Washington Color School.

Lichtenstein’s Pop Art portrays things from popular culture. That’s why it’s called Pop Art. He drew inspiration from cartoons, newspapers, advertisements, and things he saw in real life. Including creating larger then life paintings of comic book style onomatopoeia's. Lichtenstein used thick, horizontal stripes and Benday Dots in his paintings.
In 1961 Andy came up with the concept of using mass-produced commercial goods in his art. He called it Pop Art. He would use commercial images and reproduce them over and over. One early example of this was a series on Campbell's Soup cans. In one painting he had two hundred Campbell's soup cans repeated over and over.
Keith was born on May 4, 1958. He grew up in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, the oldest of four children. He started to draw right away. "My father made cartoons. Since I was little, I had been doing cartoons, creating characters and stories."
"They were humans and animals in different combinations. Then flying saucers were zapping the humans. I remember trying to figure out where this stuff came from, but I have no idea
