Grasshopper sang in the field for Winter!
by Michelle, grade 4
This piece makes me wonder if "Winter" is a season or a person. Another thought, when I look at this I can see the entire paper as a fluffy field of white snow and the colors are representations of happiness.
Altering a text filled page for me is almost like a meditation. You absolutely have to slow down in order to find just the right words to compose just the right sentence. Now your mind conjures up an image, colors, lines and shapes to go with that sentence.
|She flung it.|
Notice how this student uses the element of line to push her idea. The curved lines are not only in the round spiral but in the fabric as well; also notice the expression on the girl's face.
|Jack wished for a supper this night.|
This student wanted it to look like "...those planes that carry a sign behind them".
(I think this student shows an amazing sense of space and color)
|The band wished for a good supper.|

When Jack came down the chimney he heard big words from giants.
(notice the ear on the bottom left and how "big words" are represented with large colored dots)
The disappeared chimney. Hey Dad, the chimney disappeared.
