Students in 2nd Hour are working on a fun group project - Face Cut Out Posters! Check out what they have started so far...
This week in 1st hour we worked on a grid enlargement of two famous paintings, Starry Night and Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh. Each student had their own section of the paintings they had to recreate in their own style. After finishing the Grid Enlargements, we finished up our presenations on Letter Photography. We also made inchies!! Inchies are 2 x 2 inch wooden squares that we put our name on and decorated how we wanted to. Miss Westphal is taking our inchies to cover the top of a table, our art is just that fantastic! :D
This week we finally put together our whole Grid Inlargement of American Gothic (the origanal artist is Grant wood.) Also this week we started to do our Cut-Out Posters project, we did this by looking up a famous peice of artwork and redrawing it on a big sheet of paper. Then we had to cut out the face of the peice of artwork so someone can place your head through the hole. To end our week we had to do an Inchies assignment which are, designing a little peice of wood how ever you would like but it has to have your name on it.
In the beginning of the week our 2nd hour class did a photo scavenger hunt. The first task was take a ''senior'' style portrait of each member in the group. We also had to take a jump shot of members of the group. Then we had to find something we found beautiful and take a snapshot revealing the details. After that we had to take a creative group photo of every member in the frame then lastly we needed to take each member to spell out JETS! (Like the picture shown above)
Mid-week we started our projects for photography. The first assignment is letter photography and the second project is a mini photography portfolio. We need to combine all the photos into a powerpoint to present to the class on Tuesday of next week.
