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!
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!

Today was the first day of high school art (1st and 3rd Hour) of the 2nd Trimester. We started off the year with a project in Op Art. Op Art is short for Optical, as in optical illusions. The project is completed first with pencil, then sharpie, and finally shaded with colored pencil. This piece gives me a chance to analyze student skill level, and just learn the ropes of the art room :)
Reminder to students - DUE Friday:
• Sketchbook with 30 minutes of drawing
• Portfolio (made with a folded piece of poster board)
• Photo Release
• This first 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!
