Third trimester is already here! In addition to a Painting class, I am teaching two brand new courses for North Central - Art History and Mixed Media. I am very excited about both of them, and have a lot of creative lessons planned.
This week, my Painting class did an overview of color theory. Their first painting is a classic monochromatic tree project. The final results will be completed at the end of the week.
The Art History class started from the beginning with prehistoric art. They researched some of the first examples of art - Venus of Willendorf, Caves of Lascaux and Stonehenge. Wednesday was spent experimenting with clay and applying concepts they researched. Thursday, we moved to Egyptian Profiles, which are due on Friday.
The Mixed Media class is completing a collage inspired by the artist Michelle Caplan. Items that must be included in the piece are text, painting, newspaper collage and a photo transfer using Mod Podge.
Check back for results to be posted soon!
