Draumurinn um hringlaga flugdreka

kites

Every once in a while I have tried to design a circle kite and even encouraged my students to do so. Thats an easy and fun task, flying how ever turned a circle-shaped kite is not so easy. The people of Guatemala have an ancient tradition of creating giant circle kites at the All Saints Day Kite Festival during the Day of the Dead celebration (picture underneath belongs to that website). That must be the ultimate event for every kite enthusiast to attend.

However, these days I am construction a Hawaiian moon kite with one of my students. Material: Chinese paper, bambus. The first 80 minutes we spend on choosing the material, constructing the sail and experimenting with ink. I mostly use the book “DuMonts Bastelbuch der Drachen” with construction guidelides https://www.amazon.de/DuMonts-Bastelbuch-Drachen-Flugtechnik-Konstruktion/dp/3770109465

1st graders describing their work

Krummakletta are a volcanic landscape mark behind our school. The first graders worked a project I found on access art (drawings by Maurice Sediak). They learned mark making and drawing with ink, pens, pencil and oil pastels and made a group piece out of it.

Spring term schedule 2019

It has been my habit to prepare visual calendar (moodboard) for myself and the student. It leads us through the weeks. I dedicate each month to an art epoque, however the techniques and terms learned will be repeated through time in the different projects (light & shadow, perspective drawing, color theory). Furthermore, students are learning differnt techniques or using something already learned but a different theme (acrylic painting, drawing with pencil and ink, watercolor, pens, water solulable pencils, felting, clay). I add or remove things from the schedule as time goes by. The felting project came out of a collaboration with my colleague Ragnheiður Lárusdóttir. She is introducing Snorra Saga. It fits well into my schedule, so I added a brochure of the artist Louise Harris latest exhibition and a sample we did together. In connection with perspective drawing I brought sweets to the lessons and let the students draw them from many sites. They may also use magnifying glasses. Later on, they will make a small painting using what they learned.

Ongoing Projects

Perspective drawing, patterns in clay and kite making

The following snapshots are showing different ongoing projects this spring. Students study perspective drawing with sweets, patterns in clay and construction of kites.

Quintessenz

Just found a an article about these 2 fantastic German artists how are known under “Quintessenz”. “With roots in both graffiti and chromatics, Thomas Granseuer and Tomislav Topic of Quintessenz combine aspects of spray paint, textiles, installation, and the digital image in their work. Their large site-specific works and facade murals often uses shape as the main inspiration, while also borrowing aesthetic elements found on location.”

Happy reading https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2018/07/colorful-installations-by-quintessenz/

Steypumótun

Að vinna með steypu getur verið frábært viðbót til dæmis í leirmótun sem val fyrir unglingastígið.Aðeins breyta um efnivið.

Steypu gerð: múrblöndu keypti ég í húsasmiðjunni eða byko. Því er blandað með gifs (1 bolli múr blanda á moti 0,5 bolli af gifs). Blanda varlega saman, svo bætir maður vatn í þangað til að hægt sé að láta blönduna renna í mót.
