The Art Foundations 1 students are undergoing a colorful transformation between realism to abstraction. Last week we spend time on Color Theory and now the have to implement what they learned into their very own masterpiece. Each painting with a different twist on Abstraction. Here are some works in progress.
Drawing/Painting I students are to select a topic that you are interested in working with such as but not limited to: fashion, careers, cars, culture, surreal, random, etc. Using magazines, drawings, and newspapers they are to begin searching for images relating to their topic. Using these images they begin to cut these images out and create a collage in their sketchbook using their knowledge of appropriation and juxtaposition to determine composition. Finally, they learn how to stretch their very own canvas.
Art Foundations 3 students were engaged in developing their self-portraits through the use of tissue paper cut into very small squares. The build up of layers demonstrated the students knowledge of their use of value.
This project was facilitated by Elizabeth Moritmer, Silver Lake College student teacher.
The North High Art Club completed making the holiday wreaths for “Making Spirits Bright” Holiday Lights at Evergreen Park in November.
The event is hosting by the local rotary clubs in an effort to raise money for the numerous food panties in our county.
The wreaths will be on display in the Quarry Building.
