The Drawing/Painting class recently completed Spirit Animal illustrations inspired by Pop Artist Romero Britto. Britto is famous for bright, bold colors and simplistic design. Students researched, chose a spirit animal and started creating. Oil pastel or tempera paint were the options for finalizing the piece. Can you figure out which artist created each project based on their brief artist statement?
Check the list below and find out.

My 1st hour 3D Art/Ceramics class is working on one of my favorite projects - Art History Mini Golf. Groups consist of 2-4 members. The groups started with a list of artists to choose from. The 6 artists pictured below were chosen. Each group will now design and construct one miniature golf hole inspired by that particular artist. After the holes are complete, we will have a little golf tournament. I'm excited to see what they come up with!
An artist statement is a way to bridge the gap between an artists' message and the viewer. Pictured below is my Senior Exhibition from Northern Michigan University in 2009. The artist statement is pictured on the left. An image can also be included for viewers to get a visual on what the actual artist looks like as well. Statements should be direct, and a way for viewers to get questions answered without the artist being present.
My 2nd hour class is now Drawing/Painting. Their first project was a simple Monochromatic Landscape painting. This was a good chance for some Color Theory, paint mixing 101 and basic brush control. Monochromatic is using one HUE from the Color Wheel (Blue, for example) mixed with Black, White, or Grey.
White = Tint
Grey = Tone
Black = Shade
Up next, students are working on Spirit Animal illustrations based on the current artist Romero Britto. Romero Britto is a Brazilian Pop artist that has work all over the world. He is the official ambassador for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and had work in Super Bowl halftime shows, US stamps, and in the 2010 World Cup. Students are also required to write a brief artist statement explaining why they chose their particular Spirit Animal.
2nd Trimester is in full swing! My first hour is now 3D Art/Ceramics. The first big project for this group of Seniors is RELIEF TILES. They had the requirement of carving something OUT of the tile (sunken relief) and ADDING dimension to the tile (low/high relief). Here are some pictures of the works in progress. I'm anxious for the results.
