The students were shown two works of art by Delaunay. Delaunay was famous for her geometric abstractions with circular shapes. The students worked in groups to compare and contrast the two works of art using both geometry vocabulary and art vocabulary. We used the Venn Diagram for this activity, which ironically is made of overlapping circles! After their close examination of these paintings, they shared with the class their findings, and then we all started to create our own geometric abstractions inspired by Sonia Delaunay.
I am the art teacher at Big Shanty Intermediate School. I have been teaching art for 13 years, and have taught all grade levels, K-12. I have two daughters, both attend school at Palmer. I love to paint, and I specialize in portraiture, abstract art, cityscapes, and flower paintings. I am so excited about this 2016-2017 school year!
