Grade 6 Art

Welcome to 6th grade Art! Below you can find information about the specific project we do in Art class along with examples of student work. To see more, please visit our online gallery, Artsonia! 


Woodbury Art projects are based on the Elements of Art and include as many different media and as much choice as possible to engage student artists and help them to find something they enjoy and can succeed with. Below you can find examples of our current project.

Line: Line Book/Cube

  • Students learn about the 5 basic types of lines (horizontal, vertical, diagonal, zig-zag & curved) and create a book or 3- dimensional cube illustrating each of those lines through a theme of their choosing. 

Shape: Mandala Printmaking project

  • Students learn about geometric and organic shapes as well as the process of printmaking. They then design a reflective design and print many, many prints, practicing the process until they've got 4 beautiful prints they like. They then cut those prints out and assemble and glue them to a piece of construction paper to create a mandala.

Space: 1 Point Perspective

  • Students learn about 1 point perspective and creating a 3-dimensional space on a flat piece of paper. They practice together as a class and then create their own fantasy cities as viewed from above (bird's eye view).

Color: Creative/Zentangle Color Wheel

  • Students learn about primary, secondary and tertiary colors and how to mix colors to create others. In Mrs. Deschene's class, they create a color wheel of their own design, and in Mrs. Thibodeau's class, students create zentangle patterns on top of their painted color wheels.

Form & Texture: Pinch Pot Creatures

  • Students learned about and created pinch pots, then added on creative facial features by slipping and scoring to turn their pinch pots into creatures. Once dry, they painted them to finish their work.
