To start the year off we created sketchbooks using ink, texture, and text stickers. We then took what we learned to create a collage with handmade stickers. This year we will be exploring reasons to create art. This month we are focusing on telling others what is important to us and creating art with a message.
During September, students studied basic color theory. We applied our knowledge of color by creating a finger-painted background. We then designed a silhouette to go over that background. Check out the photos of the students in action and some of the finished results!
This month students are studying value and shading. We are using our skills from this simple candy drawing to create beautiful grid drawings. Below are some finished examples!
