"This week in art, we finished our block letters. We used acrylic paints. We blended 2 colors together, and used a design on top. My work was based off of a small indie game known as "The Legend Of Zelda. The one in a million people who've played the games will see the true beauty of this masterpiece."
- Br3ndan T, Period 9
"This week we worked on our monochromatic painting projects. I decided to do mine in blue because I thought it looked the coolest. Also this week we did the watercolor straw project. I did mine using dark colors like blues, greens, and black. It kinda looks like a dark forest."
- Quinn E, Period 5
This was the first week of Quarter 4! It's hard to believe that we're in the last 9 weeks of school already. Students in 8th grade art have started the planning and brainstorming process for our clay choice unit. After spring break, we'll explore the properties of clay and learn HOW to build our projects before we get started. Be thinking about your designs so you're ready to make something awesome when we get back from break!
