This past week was a bit of a stressful one for me. It is getting to THAT time of year when schedules are getting quite filled up, and us teachers can become overwhelmed. SO... I decided to do something that always helps me de-stress: PAINT.
I've been wanting to paint the cubby above my sink for quite a while, in addition to covering the old mural done at least 10 years ago that was a bit outdated in my room. I chose a bright BLUE (officially "Bay City Blue" according to the friendly man at Menard's who helped me out) and I am very happy with the results so far.
As I painted, I found myself in a very productive mode, and started the first layers on some cabinet doors as well. Take a peek :)
These fun paper sphere sculptures were created by all high school art students to be used for decoration at the Spring Art Show scheduled for May 15th :)
Intro to Art students (9th and 10th graders) recently completed two different projects: Tint/Shade paintings and Oil Pastel drawings of animals of their choice. Check out the results!
These wonderful watercolor paintings were created by the Art History class during 3rd hour. The vibrant colors used makes them quite the eye catching group of paintings!
In our 3D class, we experimented with Clay, created canvas paintings, and completed a paper sphere sculpture.
As you can see from the pictures, we were assigned to do a subtractive sculpture. We were given a piece of floral foam and told to make a 3-dimensional form. The catch was that either the design, or the colors we made, it needed to portray a mood/emotion. This week we are turning our focus to clay impression dishes. Everybody in the class has to create a set of 4 dishes that contain designs made by impressions. So far, all is going well.
