Macchia ART for “ONE”

September 12, 2014

Hey cycle 2,

Today we are going to use art to make a statement!

After hearing the story “ONE” by Kathryn Otoshi we learned a lot about various themes:

  • Leadership
  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Empathy
  • Appreciation
  • Courage
  • Friendship

Today you will be creating Macchia art to highlight the importance of BLENDING. Being tolerant of others makes us who we are. Our Macchias will be a symbol of this!

What is Macchia art?

Macchia

Artist Dale Chihuly (Chi-hoo-lee) is most notably known for his glass blowing process that incorporates cool and warm colours into organic shapes. The word macchia (ma-key-yah) means “spotted” in Italian.

Amazing Grace

amazing-grace-1hhk42yHey Cycle 2,

We have been working hard looking at different literacy elements and preparing to write our reading response on the book Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman.

Below is a great video. To start off, the book is read to you! Then, different people, including Whoopi Goldberg talk about their life and how it is similar to some elements depicted in the story.

Together we are going to work on a Venn-diagram to compare and contrast the character of Grace to Whoopi Goldberg. You’ll see, they are both very inspiring people :)

I can’t embed the video onto our blog, but click on the link and it will redirect you to Vimeo!
