My lovely Mixed Media class completed their first project - Japanese Notans. This concept is all about positive/negative space, and balance. The background was painted with watercolor, and black construction paper was cut to create the designs in the foreground. Click on the images below to enlarge.
This trimester I am excited to have an Art History class, composed of a mixed group of high school students. We are starting with the beginning of Art back in Pre-Historic times.
We learned about Stonehenge, the Venus of Willendorf, and Cave Paintings of Lascaux.
Students had fun trying out the style of pictographs on brown paper, symbolizing the cave walls.
Up next, it's time for Egyptian profile drawings.
