6th Grade Art:
This week, 6th grade students have been hard at work on their drawing skills. Ms. Heuel has had students creating two different sketches: the 3-dimensional name design using 1-point perspective (sketchbook #1), and a creative abstract "endless line" drawing where students demonstrate their knowledge of warm and cool colors and practice their colored pencil coloring skills. Both of these drawings will be due next week.
7th Grade Art:
This week, 7th grade students began their monochromatic painting unit. Work began by creating value scales in a variety of colors. Students will choose one color to create a self-portrait painting. Ms. Heuel took photos of students, which will be manipulated on the computer next week using Adobe Photoshop in preparation for our final paintings next week.
Also in art, students worked on their sketchbook drawings (surreal landscapes), which will be due next week.
8th Grade Art:
Eighth grade students started glazing their mugs this week! Yay! Next week, students will be finishing up a couple of projects, actually: pixel portraits will be turned in, glazed mugs will be finished and fired, and sketchbook #3 will be almost ready to go...
