We've been making a BIG MESS in the art room - applying paper mache to our cardboard letterforms!  We will finish this up next week, and start painting & decorating our sculptures after that.

We also began our second sketchbook assignment this week, which is a drawing of a dream room!  It will be due on Monday, October 28th.  You can see past examples of this project on our Artsonia gallery here.

Seventh grade students only had ONE day of art this week due to Outdoor Ed!  It was a double-period and we worked on our sketchbook #2 assignment, which is a black and white drawing inspired by Op Art and zentangles.  This drawing will be due on Monday, October 28th.

Next week, we will go back to working on our monochromatic portrait paintings.

Today was the last day of 8th grade art for quarter 2!  We ended our 8-Bit/Pixel art unit by creating our 8-bit Excel designs in perler beads!  Students who finished early also photographed and uploaded their creations to Artsonia.

It's always a little sad to see students go - I hope that everyone signs up for art classes at York High School next year!
