4RF have been studying Georgia O’Keefe.
As part of their new learning, they have been looking in particular at O’Keefe’s Nature Watercolor Paintings.
After Studying O’Keefe’s art, students observed flowers closely. They sketched and painted their own close-up of flowers following O’Keefe’s model. Students focused on detail, blending colors, wile adding their own style.
4EL have been studying Louise Nevelson.
As part of their new learning, they have been looking in particular at Nevelson’s Monochromatic Sculpture.
After Studying Nevelson’s art, student created and designed sculptures using recycled materials. They painted their sculptures one color to give the same effect of Nevelson’s monochromatic (meaning one color) sculptures.
4EH have been studying Andy Warhol.
As part of their new learning, they have been looking in particular at Warhol’s Popart portraits.
After studying Warhol’s paintings, students took photos of themselves, outlined their portraits in marker, and used watercolor and tempra paint to finish their portraits.
In grade four we studied COLOR and VALUE
We looked at a color wheel, how colors mix together to make SECONDARY colors, and how colors canCOMPLIMENT each other. We used WATERCOLOR PAINTS and PASTEL to experiment with color and value.
We also learned about VALUE, which is the darkness or lightness of a color. We learned that if BLACK is added to a color the darker is called a SHADE. If WHITE is added to a color, the color is called aTINT. We used PENCIL and CHARCOAL to show value.

Grade Five students took a close look at VALUE.
Value is about the lightness or darkness of a color. When a color becomes darker it is called a SHADE, and when a color becomes lighter it is called a TINT.
Grade five focused on VALUE using SHAPE and LINE. They zoomed in on a small part of their sneakers to using CHARCOAL to show detail using lines, shapes, shade and tint.
Grade five then studied insects, and used CHARCOAL to add value. This made the insects look 3D.
The final math assessment is coming this Friday on Probability, Ratios and Rates. Make sure you take home all your materials to study this week. Remember, if you need to practice any of the skills below, take a look at your Skills Link practice booklet. The following skills will be assessed in Unit 12:
*understand and use tree diagrams to solve problems
*compute the probability of outcomes when choices are equally likely
*use the multiplication counting principle to find the total number of possible outcomes for a sequence of choices
*find the greatest common factor of two numbers
*find the least common multiple of two numbers
*solve ration and rate number stories
*find the factors of numbers
*find the prime factorizations of numbers
