Mrs. Sabatino

Hi! I am Sandra Sabatino, the Hillview Art Teacher. I have been at Hillview for a LONG time! I am looking forward to guiding my students through a creative journey, exploring the historical aspects of art, as viewed through cultures and through the portfolios of famous artists.

 

 

Attention, Students!

There are 10 activities below.  The last day to submit work via email will be Friday, May 29th.

COLORING

  • find a coloring book of any kind
  • use crayons or colored pencils
  • carefully color, showing techniques you learned in class: directional strokes; edging; color overlay; fill-in

If you do not have these supplies, many grocery stores (and the Dollar Tree)have a book/toy section where you might find coloring books, colored pencils (and a pencil sharpener), and large boxes of crayons.  (If you have a home printer, Google Images is a good source for coloring pages of any kind.  Make sure you type the words “coloring page” after your search choice. Then copy and paste the image to a Word document.  You can then enlarge it to any size.)

IF THE ABOVE IS NOT AN OPTION FOR YOU, THEN:

DRAW “AN OBJECT A DAY”

  • use pencil
  • blank paper is better than binder paper, but use whichever you have
  • select a common object, place it in front of you, try to draw it with details

 

IF YOU HAVE INTERNET ACCESS:

Go to this YouTube page for some good DOODLING activities.  Use a pen or thin tipped marker.
