Art Foundations 1 Creating Their Abstract World

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. 


Collage Painting with Drawing/Painting I Students

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 | Self-portraits

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.
