The high school art foundations students have been working on different projects that all represent who they are. Students created a social media icon and emoji to represent themselves. They also drew and colored their name in the graffiti style. The final part of this was painting an old basketball to represent their interests and personality.
Students in 3D art are making a sculpture using games. We discussed a few questions before starting:
Are games just for kids?
How can we re-purpose something to make something new?
Each student is using different board games or card games to create a new 3D artwork. Here is their beginning work on this sculpture.
Students are creating artwork that shows who they are and what they like. Each student is decorating a basketball with different images and symbols to represent themselves. Here are the works in progress!
Here are some projects students were working on in the Independent Drawing class. They worked with scratch-board and anime animals to create these drawings.
Each student chose a type of basket to make and created it using either paper tubes or yarn and coiling rope. It was quite an adventure! Some students had challenges but each was able to finish making a basket.
Students in high school art have been thinking a lot about who they are and what symbols or images represent them. We looked at some symbols from social media and students created their own social media symbol or icon that represents them. They also looked at emojis and created an emoji that represents them.
Students in 3D Art are learning how art can help a group of people make a living. They are specifically looking at baskets and different ways to weave or coil to make a basket. Each student has chosen a method of creating a basket and will start making their baskets this week.
For this unit, students focused on the different ways they could create the illusion of space or depth in their artwork. We learned about 6 ways you can create space on paper. We watched this video to help us understand how to create space. Students chose an object that is small to use in the foreground and made it very large because it is the closest thing to the viewer. They chose an object that is large and drew it small in the background because it is so far away. Students also used unrealistic color in some places to make it more fun and cartoon-like.
Students in 3D Art finished their foam board sculptures inspired by Jean Dubuffet. Each student worked on creating interesting positive and negative space around and within their sculpture. They took multiple photos of each sculpture to show you the different views.
High school drawing students have been working on value drawings using different materials. Here are their beautiful drawings. Two of the drawings use charcoal and the wolf drawing uses pen in a technique called stippling. It takes much patience and dedication to make these types of drawings. Enjoy!
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.
