Quarter 3: First Projects
The first few weeks in the art room are full of routines and expectations so the students can develop ideas at an individual pace and think freely. Here are a few pictures of our first projects!
Quarter 2 Art Show Results
Students worked furiously to finish their art show projects. All projects are posted on the DMS Art Show page or the linked photos below.
Overall Winning Projects!
Quarter 1 Art Show
Students are working like mad to finish their final project of the quarter. All student selected projects are displayed in the halls and are also showcased on the online art show.
Choice Award Winners
Our overall winning project was the swan clay animal. All projects are voted on by students.
Below you can view my Mrs. Wulf's student's art work for the art show (8th period). During this class period, my students worked on pinch and coil pottery techniques. They also practiced creating patterns and looking for spaces. Space and pattern practice allowed these students to create tons of feathers (also below) for our wonderful interactive wings in the lobby here at DMS.
As always, please leave the art students a comment. Let us know what you think about their wonderful artwork!
Here are the final clay mugs. Students always have a great time glazing and it is exciting to see pottery after it has been fired the second time in the kiln.
Figure drawing is the most intimidating of all the eighth grade projects. Here you can see students building up the form of the clothing on the figures. In some of the pictures, you can view the structure of the figure the students drew in 2 minutes or less. I think these eighth graders did a fantastic job!
