Students are using line today as they finish out the marking period.
8th grade students finished their photo-editing on Photoshop and are using transparencies to project their images on a larger posterboard.
From self-portraits to Justin Beiber, students are simplifying their pictures and adding words for visual impact.
In 7th grade, students are working on the project that I wrote an article about for April's issue of SchoolArts magazine.
We compared Ancient Greek and Roman art to Contemporary artists in this Prezi before making our own scratch art paper and using athletics as our subject.
Both projects should be finished by the end of this week, proving that the week before a long break can be both art-filled and productive!
I am proud to say that I have three students whose work has been featured in April's issue of SchoolArts magazine!
Last December, we sent in Artist Trading Cards to the 5th Annual ATC competition and on page 12, you can see that Adam recieved an honorable mention!
If you click on the image and go to page 32, you can read about the Greek Scratch Art project I do with 7th grade students in conjunction with their Social Studies classes and see Jordyn and Tena's work as examples.
I am very excited to have my lesson plan and student work showcased in this magazine. I read it regularly to get new ideas for my class.
Who knows, maybe I will submit another article soon?!?!
Teaching Visual Arts since 2004 and making images since picking up a crayon.
