Now that the busy schedule of the end of October is over, I can finally get more website updates in! My three high school classes have recently finished up two large projects. My 2 Intro to Art classes have finished a large project - Famous Artist Posters. They had free choice on their artist, and did lots of research to complete their poster to fit all the rubric requirements. The final results currently decorate my room well!

The Mixed Media class of juniors have now ALL finished their Snapchat Selfie Grid Enlargements.
Check out more results below. Click to enlarge.
My project example
This week in 2nd hour Intro to Art, students created Mixed Media Self-Portraits. They started by learning the basic proportions of the face. After practicing that concept, it was put to use in drawing the top half of the face. The bottom half of the art was filled with a quote/song lyric or statement of choice in sharpie or marker. Finally, they were required to collage the background area behind the face with magazines. The result - a fun first lesson! Enjoy!

This week we are making food projects from paper mache. The class is doing very well for the first time working with it. Some of the food items being made are fruits such as watermelon, pineapple, and pears. Also, a few students decided to take the pizza route. They seem to be enjoying this project as you can tell from the photos. In the week prior, we also made a self portraits. You had to incorporate lyrics or words into the back. Not everyone seemed to like to draw themselves, while others were really excited about the project.
High School students are working on their first big project. They have completed a practice drawing of their own face, and are now moving on to the Sharpie Self Portrait.
They are required to draw their own face, section it out, and create sharpie designs in each area. The challenge for them is that they cannot use the exact same design twice. So far, the portraits look AMAZING. I cannot wait to make my first display with them in the high school. Great job to all students so far!
