Students in the Drawing & Painting classes explored Watercolor techniques to develop a composition which used the ideas of Trompe L'Oeil painting or "trick the eye" to create a composition based on a point of view of a work in progress.
Students in the Drawing and Painting classes got their first experience with wet media this semester by painting these Ink Wash paintings on unprimed canvas. They did an amazing job.
Students in Drawing & Painting have been exploring use of Acrylics in representing fabrics. They are using techniques similar to Impressionist painters in the application and mixing of paints.
Students have been using practiced colored pencil techniques to develop a representation of a Market still life of fruits and vegetables. Students selected their compositions by cropping their image to create visual interest within the square space. These are their works in progress.
Based on the theme from the Will I Am song, What I Am, students in my 12th period Drawing & Painting class developed an artistic interpretation of who they are. They brainstormed and chose adjectives they could use to describe themselves and used art materials to express themselves onto a silhouette of a person.
Students are truly One of a Kind!
Study this famous painting by American artist Grant Wood, take note of what is happening in the image. Come up with an appropriate and possibly insightful, comedic, creative caption for what you feel is happening based on the situation. It can be something you think one of the people might be saying, thinking, planning, whatever.
Be creative and have fun with it.
