In art class 3rd graders learned about the art principal of Emphasis, also known as Center of Interest. Emphasis in a piece of art refers making an object or part of the art stand out and catch a viewer’s attention. Students started by focusing on drawing their insect body with lots of details, making the insect big in size, and thinking about the insect location on the paper. Then they added patterns and designs to make the insect standout more. Lastly they added color with oil pastels to make the insects even more emphasized.
Well done 3rd Grade!
