AIR Happenings as of February 26th

In two of Dr. Michels’ Social Studies classes we discussed Leonardo da Vinci, the arts during the Renaissance period, and the act of perception. Following this talk we did a couple drawing exercises including drawing some organic shapes, drawing flowers with our non-dominant hands, drawing the figure from an upside-down reference  and blind contour (drawing without looking at the paper). These drawings turned out awesome and many of them are now being exhibited outside of room 218!

Last week Sara introduced color theory to an Interior Design class and discussed important terms and concepts and how they relate to design. Everyone created a color wheel and got to see how various colors relate to each other within various color schemes and harmonies.

AIR Happenings as of February 18th

It has been a busy couple weeks working with various classes at North as well as in the studio!

This week I had the chance to work on a very colorful art project with Beth Cesario’s class during their art time. We made glue sun catchers by filling plastic and metal lids with a layer of glue, adding some acrylic paint, and swirling this mixture around with the ends of paintbrushes to create a swirled pattern. When these dry they will each have a hole punched out and string added so they can be hung up.  All of these turned out great; we’re all looking forward to seeing them completed and hanging in the windows!

There are also many new collages and drawings in the studio. Below are some of those more recent works!

Ceramics: Works in Progress

The Senior Art 2 and Art Foundations 4 students have been working on their ceramic project. The Senior Art 2 students are creating their very own version of Japanese vinyl toys, however, instead of vinyl they are using clay. The Art Foundations 4 students are creating teapots inspired by compound words. 

Here are works in progress. Enjoy.
