I am currently scoring student brackets, and leaders will be posted Monday.
Pictured below are final projects from the 2nd hour Painting class, consisting on freshmen and sophomore students. The background was completed first. Each student chose a base color, or hue. Starting with white paint, more and more of their color was added to create the gradient. After the background was complete, trees were added in layers of tints of the original color.
Third trimester is already here! In addition to a Painting class, I am teaching two brand new courses for North Central - Art History and Mixed Media. I am very excited about both of them, and have a lot of creative lessons planned.
This week, my Painting class did an overview of color theory. Their first painting is a classic monochromatic tree project. The final results will be completed at the end of the week.
The Art History class started from the beginning with prehistoric art. They researched some of the first examples of art - Venus of Willendorf, Caves of Lascaux and Stonehenge. Wednesday was spent experimenting with clay and applying concepts they researched. Thursday, we moved to Egyptian Profiles, which are due on Friday.
The Mixed Media class is completing a collage inspired by the artist Michelle Caplan. Items that must be included in the piece are text, painting, newspaper collage and a photo transfer using Mod Podge.
Check back for results to be posted soon!
In light of March Madness, I created an "Art Madness" bracket with famous artists from the past. A popular vote will be completed in each round, and brackets have been filled out by all of my high school students. I am interested to see who takes it all!
