Fourth Grade Underground Worlds

Fourth grade students reviewed prior lessons based on narrative artwork and viewed Surrealistic and other fantasy narrative art. We looked at Saul Steinberg's "Continuous Miner" and discussed how the artist used repetitive lines that produced a simulated texture in the "ground" area. Students drew a normal above ground scene with an imaginative world below, and filled in the surrounding area with simulated textural designs.

  4. I did this project with 1st and 2nd grades today and they were great! We did it step by step together without them knowing what the final product would be. It held their attention for the whole time.
