2017-2018 Integration Studio
We are integrating all year, and just getting started! Mark your calendar for April 26, 2018 for INTEGRATION NIGHT! More info and updates coming soon!
2016-2017 Integration Studio
How student integrated with Visual Art during their integration studio rotations:
1st Grade Integration Studio
Rocking Rocks, Animals Habitats and Warm & Cool Colors!
Photos coming soon!
Kindergarten Integration Studio
Landform Landscapes! and that Value song
Kindergarten and Visual Art explore landforms and landscapes, 2D and 3D, collaboratively and individually. They also sang that beloved value song alot, learned about texture and got messy making hills, mountains, volcanoes, lakes, oceans, and some pretty awesome integrated artwork. Kindergarten shared their work with other students and guests at Integration Night.
2nd Grade Integration Studio
Inspiration: The late, great Dr. Seuss!
"It's not about what it is, it is about what it can become." ~ The Lorax
Recycle, Reuse, and Rhyme your way through creating a creature of trash, and bring it to life through 3D recycled sculpture, illustrations and a story with a message - all created from your imagination in real hardbound book. This is integration studio with 2nd grade and visual art. Combining the Elements of Story with Elements of Art, with an introduction to recycling and social responsibility to the environment, framed within the context of the great Dr. Seuss, this project is all about letting imaginations grow! At Integration Night in Spring, guests were able to read the student-created stories and were challenged to create their own creatures at our recycled art maker station. The work was installed in our window gallery over the months of March-April as part of the TCEA participation in Fayetteville's Read Across America and in honor of Dr. Seuss and Earth Day.
3rd Grade Integration Studio
The Solar System: Combining form, value, printmaking and mixed media while navigating our solar system to bring our own planetarium to life. We learned features of the planets and created both 2D and 3D planets. Students worked in teams to research features of planets and the solar system, and then created 3D spheres with proper color, value and texture from balloons, plaster-of-paris wrap and spray paint. Individually, students next learn to master blending using pastel with form, value and texture to create a planet/sphere gallery. In visual art, students expanded their research into constellations, exploring stories and myths of the stars, and then creating monoprint constellations with collagraph and relief techniques. Students presented their gallery, planetarium and challenged guests to create their own pastel planets and monoprints with the stars at Spring Integration Night.
Fall 2016 & Spring 2017 Integration Nights:
Art loves Science and Math and ELA.....and...
Video: From 2015-2016 Integration Studio with Visual Art: 5th and 6th grade students present the process of their art integration student project in this video. Throughout the project, students integrated visual art (color theory) with science (the changing states of matter) during an arts integration studio project at The Capitol Encore Academy. Students were challenged to create art about the changing states of matter (either more abstract or representational) using art media science experiments that changed states of matter during the creation process. Student integrated color theory: warm, cool, complementary during the process. Students wrote artist statements (integration ELA informative writing) explaining their work, and ended with an exhibit. During the presentation, (See Video 2) students helped guests and younger grades create their own min-artworks using the same experiments.
4th Grade Integration Studio
Most Magnificent Art Machine:
The challenge: Research recycled artwork at the Transformation exhibit, supply and demand, simple machines and the design process. Use this research to collaborate, design, create, market and sell your MOST MAGNIFICENT ART MACHINE at our trade show. Hot glue, recycled materials, teamwork and a plan (using the design process) make for a great integration studio AND real world experience! Only one design can win by whoever makes the most money sales at the Most Magnificent Trade Show! Students were able to improve on their designs and marketing campaigns and celebration their teamwork at integration night, and reflection on their learning to wrap up the project.
6th & 7th Grade Integration Studio
Learning Goal 1: I can analyze how artwork, identity, community and war/military service are related through creating a real-world installation that will be presented to an authentic audience as part of my community's Hometown Heroes art walk on Veteran's Day.
Learning Goal 2: I can collaborate with others in a team towards a common goal, recognizing individual and group roles as artists.
6th & 7th grade students were challenged to research and create a World War II themed art installation as part of the TCEA contribution to Fayetteville's Hometown Heroes event. Students attend a trip to the ASOM to explore how to create and install artwork and ensure historical accuracy. The also explored how identities and roles of women and African Americans were changing as a result of World War II. Students has to overcome design and collaboration challenges while learning about the reality of deadlines in this challenging, project-based integration studio project.
5th Grade Integration Studio
Science & Visual Art: Newton's Art! I can create and explain abstract artwork using Force, Motion and Simple Machine Experiments, applying the Elements of Art and Color Theory. Student combined color theory, art media, engineering, simple machines and the concepts of force and motion to create abstract warm, color and complementary color schemes in their abstract paintings. Next, students led others in these experiments to create an interactive science and art exhibit at Integration Night.
ELA, Social Studies & Visual Art: Students explored multiple perspectives of Native Americans through historical and contemporary artwork, overcoming assumptions and questioning stereotypes, while applying the process of art critique. Students brought it home by visiting an exhibit of contemporary artwork by local Native America artists at the arts council, where they responded to a select artwork using the steps of critique and the writing process.
