High school students worked with implied texture to create a unique artwork. Students chose an animal with some interesting texture for the scratch board. This was something different and new for all of the students.
Painting II students just finished their amazing painted portraits! The students in Haiti will love these beautiful portraits.
In drawing class we have been working with perspective to make places look realistic. Students did a practice drawing of a room first. Then we went into the hallway and drew the school hallway with lines going back to the vanishing point.
Then students added surrealist items to their room to make it strange and creative. Students are finishing up by adding pencil value.
Painting II students are creating portraits for students in Haiti. I worked with the Memory Project last year and decided to do portraits for each of the students at an elementary school in Musac, Haiti. I taught art at the school from 2012-2014 and am still involved with helping the school. This project is so great because it gives students a special gift and piece of personal history. Here are the portraits in progress!
In Painting I class, we were inspired by the artist Gustav Klimt. He used lots of patterns and repetition in his artwork. He also showed the themes of life and death in his work. Students created a watercolor painting after practicing many different techniques. Each painting shows the theme of life & death in a different way.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.
