We started this marking period of exploratory art by discussing the importance of art and creating sketchbooks to be used during the rotation. Check out some of our examples!
During November, we are exploring different types of materials to express ourselves in art. We have started a drawing project on balance. We have also started a clay project working with slabs. Below you can see a slideshow of students working with clay.
Students finalized their clay projects by adding glaze. Check out some of their finished projects!
After studying negative space, analogous colors, oil pastels, and trees, the 6th grade art students were able to produce amazing pieces of artwork. We also were able to study still lifes. We created colorful still lifes using watercolor pencils. Here are some of our examples of both projects.
Mrs. West is excited to have a new section of 6th Grade Exploratory Art. Students have already created sketchbooks and a drawing project on balance. Currently we are finishing up a clay project where each student is creating a mug with an expressive face. Check out the slideshow below to see some action shots of the students working with clay! Examples of balanced stacks are also shown below.
As we close another marking period, the 6th grade classes have been able to glaze their clay projects, learn about color mixing, oil pastels, trees, and Georgia O'Keeffe. Check out some of our finished projects below!
The final marking period brings one more group of artists! These classes have also worked on Balanced Stacks, Expressive Clay Mugs, and Negative Space Trees. Check out some of their finished work below!
