Week 12-13: (June 8-16, 2020)
We made it to the last week of on-line learning! Boys and girls, you have done a great job with this quarantine challenge. As a reminder all art projects are due Tuesday, June 16th at 4:00pm. Have a wonderful summer. Hope to see you all soon. Be safe.
For our last lesson we are going to use art to create an inspirational positive message. Explore how artists spread beauty and positive messages through their artwork by creating your own inspirational street art. I hope your are inspired to use any art materials or found objects you may have in your house to create beauty and kindness though your art.
Remember: When you email me a picture of your art work at email@example.com , make sure you include your First and Last Name, Teacher's Name, and Grade.

"WORD ON THE STREET"
Welcome to Mr. Herzog's Fifth Grade Online Lessons:
Drawing Words of Inspiration:
“Word On The Street: Inspiring Our Communities Through Art"
Watch this video first, before starting your project:
Please read through instructions before you begin:
- Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do) or it can be on any surface: sidewalk, wall, fence - but you MUST have your parents' permission!!
- If using paper, hold the paper horizontally or vertically.
- In the center of each the paper draw your word or words lightly in pencil.
"Love, Peace Now, People Matter, Be Safe, Believe, Hope, Smile, Be Kind" (words that make you and others happy)
- Make a bubble around each word to make it bold.
- Add bold lines against the letters for a shadow effect.
- Next add rays shooting out behind the words.
- Add lines, dots, or spirals inside the rays to give the word a cool design.
- Add shapes outside the rays for added designs.
- Once you are done drawing your words of inspiration, color the words in completely.
- Outline or color in the rays, lines and shapes in various bright colors.
- You may color words in crayon, magic markers, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home) or sidewalk chalk or paint if using a large surface.
- Proudly display your sign in your neighborhood.
- I can't wait to see how your words will inspire me and others!
- Remember: once you are finished with your artwork, take a picture of it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I cannot grade artwork that does not have this information. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
Here are a few examples of Street Art.
