SPP+PP in Picasso’s Palace

Today a few art students stayed after school to splatter paint a clothing of choice. The idea originated first semester after the art faculty participate in North’s Lip Dub in which they were splatter painted by students. If you are wondering what SPP+PP means well…splatter paint pants and pizza party. It was nice to be surrounded by laughter. 

Here are some photos from today.

Abstraction by Megan M, Drawing/Painting II

Megan’s initial thoughts about creating an abstract painting without any direction made her use a lot of imagination and discovered that her best approach was going with the flow. She defines abstraction as a work of art having different colors with no initial planning resulting in using her emotions to represent her work.

Her assignment was to produce an abstract painting based on prior knowledge of the use of Elements and Principles of Design as well as using her feelings to express herself through color, texture, juxtaposition and so on. Once she was finished Mr. Juarez and Megan had a discussion as to how she created this painting, what she liked about it, what would she do differently and finally saying that she will have to produce another painting based on her previous experience.
