North High Art Department Splatter Paint

North High Art Department participated in North High’s 2012 Lip Dub celebrating 75 years of Excellence. A portion of this splatter painting will be included in the official North High Lip Dub. We just happened to document this unique experience with our fabulous art students.

Ready to Rock-n-Roll with the 75th Anniversary Mural

The mural design is finally sketched onto three (3) 5foot by 10foot aluminum panels. Yesterday was a looooong day, but well worth the time. Now, we get to invite the community to participate in painting this mural designed by Dale Knaak of Sheboygan. 

The North High Art Department will be inviting the community once a month (a Saturday) to add his or her brushstroke to the mural commemorating 75 years of Excellence. In the meantime, join us on Saturday, September 29th from 9am to 11am to begin this journey.

We will be listing those dates very soon. 

Op Art Revisited

AP Portfolio I students are in the process of creating their very own Op Art painting on a stretched canvas. This project will involve students coming up with ideas on how to create their own Op Art painting via studies and color selection. Students will then learn how to stretch and gesso their own canvas. Students will be introduced to masking and hard edge as well as to artists such as Victor Vasarely and Bridget Riley.
