Translucent, Opaque and Transparent

In science, we have been studying light! A couple of the terms that we have been learning about are refraction and reflection along with how light travels. We have also been looking at artwork by the famous artist Vermeer, because he was a light expert creating beautiful painting that captured light. Later this week, we will be making an art piece inspired by O’Keeffe using our knowledge of our new terms translucent, opaque, and transparent. When learning these three new terms, we studied tempo and how each of these words would move with rhythm. We assigned opaque a slow tempo because it is blocking light, translucent a medium tempo since it is letting some light through, and the fastest tempo was represented transparent letting all light through. Student created the rhythms and preformed them for the class.
