I am a HUGE Coldplay fan and was delighted when I came across this video from their new album of the song "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall." It combines graffiti art, neon glowing murals, and stop motion filming as a way to draw wonderfully transforming images and capture the whole of this visually interesting video. Check it out and think about how you could use your camera, a tripod, and some chalk to create the same kind of vibe for your own favorite songs...

Alexandre Orion uses the dirt and car soot that he collects from his "reverse" grafitti. The video below shows how he uses it to make even more images...
Here is some video of a graffiti artist who uses a reverse method to his work - cleaning away the pollution to create his images.
8th grade students are working with their posters before finishing out the week and taking a nice long break from school!
Inspired by the work of Shepard Fairey and other street artists, students are using celebrities, political figures, and characters from movies as the subjects of their work.
From paint to sequins, students are selecting materials and applying it to their work.
These colorful works will be plastered in the halls shortly after break.
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!
Starting today, 8th grade students will be working from photographs to create a street art inspired poster. Using their own image, they will use the Stamp filter in Photoshop, a transparency, and a posterboard to create their works.
The how to guide is in the word document below.
