We started the school year by creating an art work that gave away pieces of information about ourselves. We started by making a collage from magazines that were about us. Using the elements and principles of design we added details with oil pastels. Finally we made a top layer of our first initial and painted it with watercolor paint. Below are some examples of our collages before the initial was added and some of our finished projects.
During the month of September we created sketchbook covers. Our sketchbooks will be used throughout the year to take notes and do rough drawings. We did an introduction to value and shading. We also studied the art of graffiti. Students chose a theme and created graffiti styled words to represent their themes. Below are some examples. Can you guess what some of their themes are?
This month we are continuing to study value and form. We have started by looking at shading with value to draw some candy in the form of a sphere, cone, rectangular prism, and a cylinder. Can you guess what type of candy we were looking at?
