Art Comprehension 1
My fabulous Art 1 students are stepping up to the plate engaged in a study of self-portraits using a system of monochromatic paints.  We will merge into creating two origami pieces which will unfold into a color wheel, thus a study in color theory.

Drawing students are currently drawing the human skull focusing on light sources, shadows, and highlights. They are also creating a picture of themselves as metaphors.
Students have learned about the three hand building methods.  They are currently making slab pieces and cutting out Notans.

After a successful project modeling after Louise Nevelson work, the students were challenged with creating a
a skeleton puppet for Dia De Los Muertos. 
They are currently tasked with a study on "houses on stilts.  Using cardboard, string, foam board, wood sticks, and white glue they are making models of their chosen house.

Painting students are currently challenged with self-portraits while experimenting with newly purchased oil paints.  They have completed the first assignment using acrylic paints and complimentary colors.
