We are finally back from our extended Spring Break
and the excitement of our boys winning a
State Championship in Class D Basketball!
Here is an update of what we
are working on in the Art room:
My small class of Seniors is starting an Impressionism Painting. They are researching famous artists from the genre and recreating a painting in the style famous for exhibiting emotion through strong, visible brushstrokes. In addition, they are also completing the same process with Post-Impressionism.
The 2nd hour class is working is small groups of 3-4 to create an abstract project in the style of Wassily Kandinsky. After the black lines are complete, colors are added with an Analogous color scheme. While drawing they are focusing on things like - repeating shapes, shapes within shapes, items running off of the paper, etc.
Last, but not least, 3rd hour is working on Magazine Zentangles. After choosing an image (or two) from a magazine of their choice, they then use sharpie to illustrate around it. The organized sharpie doodling is called Zentangling. In addition, they may choose to use the sharpie to enhance their magazine portion. For example, the details outlined on the shirt and necklace in the image pictured on the left.
