First graders had a blast making art with potatoes last week.
The focus of this project was pattern, repetition and movement.
Students learned that these three elements are not only important in music and math, but in visual art as well.

To prove this point, I showed them artworks such as "La Gerbe" by Matisse and "Squares with Concentric Circles" by Kandinsky. Everyone agreed that both artworks would not have the same impact without the use of repetition.

For their paintings, students were given various potatoes cut into different shapes. They chose which ones they wanted to use to dip into paint and print on their paper. Their challenge was to create art that showed action, or movement through their repetitive designs.

Below are a few of the results:
