Virtual Refrigerator: Chimney Sweeps with Rhythm

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop is co-hosted by A Glimpse of Our LifeAngels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!
This week Kennady's lesson was about creating rhythm in art by repeating a pattern. The lesson examined The Boston Massacre by Paul Revere, and showed how he used the repeating pattern of the British soldiers and the use of color to contrast rhythm and chaos, and created strong emotional impact.

The assignment was to draw an imagined event where many people are taking the same action, and to demonstrate the use of rhythm in the picture. At first, Kennady wanted to draw people marching in a parade, but had trouble getting that idea onto paper in a way she liked. Later that night, she and I watched Mary Poppins together and the next day she completed the assignment with a different subject. The event she imagined is chimney sweeps dancing on the rooftops!

You can grab the button above and add it to your post. Add your link here to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts. Please visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!
