Art 1 tried something new this year with paper mache and the results are AWESOME! We made paper mache bowls, painted the inside with an analogous color scheme and used cut paper to mosaic the outside. They are amazing! Nice work, Art 1!

Reflective / Distorted Portraits

Reflective / Distorted Portraits

Illustration students worked on oversized drawing paper to create their own reflective / distorted portraits.  Students searched for a unique object that would reflect their image. Then with shading and a strong use of value they went ahead and illustrated their portraits. These have become great pieces to add to their portfolio’s.

Art 2 Landscape Paintings

Art 2 Landscape Paintings

 

Using tempera paint, Art 2 students set out to create landscapes with an emphasis on atmospheric perspective. The goal was to make the viewer feel as if it were possible to walk into and wander around.  Atmospheric perspective deals with how the appearance of an object is affected by the space or atmosphere. The closer something is, the more details you can see, and the further away, the less distinct.  They also used diminishing size, detail, contrast and lightening of overall values to achieve realistic landscapes.
