Students worked on more perspective this week as we ventured out into the halls to capture what we encounter every school day. It was fun to see students revisit this concept in a new way and then digitize it in Photoshop. Below are some of the results and the full gallery can be see on our Artsonia page.
Students took to the hallway for the 3rd day, working on their vanishing points to create believable drawings of what they see.
This project is always interesting because students end up noticing so many details that they normally would just pass by.
Being an artist is about seeing the world around you. It is more about how you see than it is about how you draw or paint or sculpt. This assignment's main focus is to get students to open their eyes and see the world around them, using perspective to recreate it on paper.
8th grade students are finishing up the final upload of work onto Moodle before our long weekend for Thanksgiving break.
Tomorrow I will be chaperoning the 8th grade field trip to the Ford Presidential Museum downtown, leaving today the last work day before the break.
If students did not get their Artist Trading Cards done today, they are expected to work on them for homework and turn them into Moodle next Monday.
7th grade students worked non-stop today to finish uploading their work from the week onto Moodle. In addition to their hallway drawings, where they used 1-point perspective, they also uploaded their pictures of the clay project featured in past posts.
It is so nice to see the work, all shining and bright, on display in the library for all to admire. I am hoping we will do our second sculpture project when we return from holiday break (but I am still a few panty hose short from making it happen and need some donations).
8th grade students are still working on their hallway drawings and uploading their clay bottles for a grade. They will finish up on Monday and then move onto making Artist Trading Cards for the March international show in Singapore.
Students are using the materials from the DonorsChoose project that was funded through the help of several generous donors!
Images of the cards and more work will be shortly finding a home on our online gallery on Artsonia, so keep a lookout for more!
