Here are some current updates for my 3 high school classes.
1st Hour - Intro to Art
Students recently finished up a Mixed Media Self-Portrait Project. After that, they started a group project using the Grid Enlargement process. The final result? A face cut-out poster to be display for interaction at the Spring Art Show. Next week, they will do their first painting assignment!
2nd Hour - Painting
Painting students are currently focusing on Monochromatic color schemes. They practiced one color with various neutrals, like white, black, and grey. The first painting was specific to my assignment, and the second one is more independent. This leaves room for them to paint what they desire.
4th Hour Drawing
The first assignment for the Drawing class was a Unity Ribbons shading exercise using ebony pencils, and oil pastel. Now, they are starting a GIANT grid enlargement of their choice!
Check out some photos below.
The end of the Trimester is always a cleaning time in the Art room. I like to test markers, wipe out cabinets, and go through other supplies. The students did an amazing job helping and I am thankful for a clean room to start fresh for the final trimester of the 2013-2014 school year. Time was even found during Saturday school to paint the front of my sink cabinets. See the difference below! Good luck to all in the final portion of the school year!
