The art show results are in! Students in 2nd quarter learned of the Choice Award Winners. We did have a shortened day due to weather and one class still needs to get certificates and their photo taken. Here are the winners of the Student Choice Awards and Teacher selections.
Final Week of Quarter 2!
It's the final week of quarter 2 and we have the art show, critique, voting, cleaning, and projects to finish up! I'm not sure how we fit so many things into the last week but it always get done. Maybe it's the fantastic art students!
The students and I would love for everyone to vote on their favorite 6th, 7th, and 8th grade project. Please visit the art show page to vote!
End of Quarter 2
Wow! We are one week until the end of quarter 2! How did the time fly by so quickly?
All art show projects are posted on the online art show page.
Students are busy finishing and starting projects. We never stop in this room. I always have another skill or project to teach. From the look of the pictures, students are excited to work on each project I throw at them.
Eighth grade students are finishing their Hidden Color Wheels and beginning a symbolism project.
7th Grade Still-Life Drawings
Seventh grade students are finishing up their Still-Life artwork. I am so proud of their hard work! They created a small drawing first, wrote a goal on drawing and shading skills, and then began their large drawing. So many skills are involved in this project but the most important is focusing their attention. You could hear a pin drop in my classes while students are finished. I think they are proud of what they have accomplished!
Drawing in the Art Room
Students are working hard to complete their drawings before glazing.
Holiday Art Show
All students have finished their first drawing assignment as well as their pottery. They are patiently waiting for me to fire them so they can be glazed! In the mean time, the designs below will be showcased at our Holiday Art Show in the FAC at the High School Today. You will also find winning art work from the first quarter art show and teacher selection pieces. I hope to see you all at the Holiday Show!
Printmaking and Painting in Art
Holy buckets, it is already December! The 6th students were making a mess in the art room earlier this week. I love the patterns they created. These will be a background for their zentangle animals. The 8th grade students are working a watercolor painting. This particular project expects attention to color theory. I can't wait to see how their final paintings turn out!
