During March students have been worked on a variety of new techniques and I am very proud of them! K-2nd graders have learned about Pop artist Wayne Thiebaud and his paintings of desserts. Students drew their own ice cream dessert inspired by Wayne Thiebaud and learned how to add shadows to their objects to make their artwork look more realistic. 3rd-5th graders were also inspired by Wayne Thiebaud's work and drew unique cake designs. We learned about texture and how Thiebaud uses oil paints to create a "frosting-like" texture in his paintings. To recreate his style, students mixed oil pastels and baby oil to blend colors for their cake. Middle school students have worked hard to finish their Grid Enlargement Portraits where they learned about proportions and using a grid drawing system to create photo-realistic drawings.
For our new projects, K-2nd graders will learn about Andy Warhol and his screen print "Flowers" from 1964. Students will create a springtime inspired flower collage using two different painted paper techniques. 3rd-5th graders will learn about comic book artist Roy Litchenstein and create drawings illustrating onomatopoeia words (sound words such as bam, woosh, pop etc.) Middle School students are working on their Clay Vessels project. Students will learn about the pinch pot and slip and score techniques of ceramics to create a bowl, cup, vase etc. Happy Spring!
