Students just completed a bigger project working with theme, variation and mixed media. We experimented with lots of different materials first. Students learned that artists often experiment before creating something. Then, students chose a theme and sketched different variations of that theme. Students had to use at least 2 different materials in the final artwork. Here are the creative designs made by the high school students. Can you see the theme and variation in each? What different materials do you see?
Students worked on creating different mural ideas for our MS/HS building. We learned how color and environment can improve learning. Students voted on their favorite designs and also had the high school students vote for the final mural designs. Here are the designs going up in the school in the next few weeks!
Here are some other really creative designs that didn't get the final vote.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.
