This year was a great year for my Junior High students.
Many great art projects were created, and knowledge was gained in all classes.
Some of their projects this past Trimester were -
Holiday Door Decorating (Elements of Art)
1-Point Perspective Rooms
Art History Introduction - Grid Enlargement of Famous Art
Design-an-Ad through the Daily Press
Zentangle Clay Hands
Color Theory (Warm vs. Cool Tree)
Analogous Animal Mixed Media Collages
Grid Enlargement - Playing Cards
Winter Landscape Triptych Paintings
Independent Clay Project
Masking Tape Murals (Artist Buff Diss)
Art History Review
I also took the 7th and 8th grade students on a field trip for the first time. Students were able to view student art work from around the area, including their own at the Bonifas Art Center in Escanaba. While there, they completed an instagram photo scavenger hunt.
Within small groups, they decided on their favorite artwork, for example -
