This Week in Art: February 2-6, 2015

Today I am roller-skating in PE classes. I stopped briefly during lunch to get the weekly blog post completed for this week! Gotta roll!

There are a lot of "E"s in the sixth grade this term!

Sixth grade art classes finished their letter sculptures this week! Be on the lookout for an Artsonia gallery upload real soon! Today, students will be learning about Dale Chihuly via Scholastic Art magazine, in preparation for our Chihuly "melted" abstract flower project, which we'll work on next week!

Students should have finished their portrait paintings by now, and today some students began creating Campbell's soup labels after the work of Andy Warhol. Our "pop" art unit continues into next week, when we start drawing... pop cans! Students should bring in a canned beverage for art class on Monday. We're going to create observational drawings of our can, to help improve our drawing skills!

Eighth grade students just started on their pixelated portrait "selfies" this week! This is a time-intensive project, but they look so cool when they're finished! While students were working on their drawing, Mrs. Leban got all of the clay work fired for the bisque firing... which means that in a week or two, we'll be working on our glaze! Yay!

Thanks for another great week!
