Here are the final clay mugs! Students worked swiftly and with great care to develop a unified design. They needed to problem solve if their construction was not meeting the appearance and texture expectations. Great job to all students!
Eight grade students worked very quickly to review clay techniques from previous years as they made these fabulous Clay Pendants. We covered coil, slab, and handmolding. Students also learned about geometric vs. freeform and reviewed attaching. This was all done in 2 class periods along with learning clean up and where to keep clay safe! High five to my students for achieving this feat! These tiny clay creations will be made into wearable and useable art after they are glazed.
Enjoy the photos below of all finished pendants!
8th Grade Graphic Design T-Shirts
Eight grade students just finished their graphic design unit. Their objective was to create 1 t-shirt design advertising a club or sport related to DMS. Each t-shirt design was to include a heading, phrase, and image. Students were also given the task to develop a design using unity, balance, contrast, and creative lettering.

Final Drawing Projects
Students are working hard to complete their drawings for the final art show of the year. 8th grade has been working on Graphic Design. Seventh grade is developing their Shaded Still-Life. Animals are being created by the sixth grade students. We also stopped mid-project to glaze so the students will have another option for the art show.
Here are a few examples of the 8th grade Graphic Design t-shirts.
Drawing in the Art Room
Students in 7th grade are beginning their Still-Life Drawings. Tomorrow they will be creating their final drawings, reflecting, and beginning to shade their practice drawings. Students will continue to work back and forth between their practice and final papers as well as reflect on the drawing and shading skills.
