Mrs. West is very excited about the start of a new semester and having 7th Grade Art! This month we have created sketchbooks, portfolios, and a project that represents the students. Students created a collage and chose a word that was characteristic about themselves. They cut the letters out of their collage and defined the word on the border of the letters. The results show a small representation of who they are. Check out some examples of their beautiful results!
This month the students learned about printmaking. They created monotype prints out of water soluble oil pastels. See some of their beautiful results below! They have also started learning color theory. They have been experimenting with color combinations with finger painting, and silhouettes. Stay tuned for some completed examples!
It was fun to experiment with finger painting!
Students continue to explore painting techniques this month. We also have started studying value scales and how to shade. During the month of April, the students will begin drawing a picture of their choice using seven different values. Below are examples of our value studies. We looked at candy for inspiration to help learn how to shade!
Below are some examples of our completed Silhouettes on Finger Painting!
Using the skills we learned last month, we were able to create beautiful pencil drawing with value. Check out some of our finished work!
