Soap Carvings, Assemblage, and Individual Studies

Art 1- This week we worked on soap carvings. Students were instructed to carve a boat first and then were given the freedom to carve whatever they wanted. This project introduced the art of carving. Students really enjoyed this project! I am also including two sketches from Art 1 students.


 Art 2- For the past two weeks students have been working on textured landscape projects. Before starting, students researched Anselm Kiefer in order to get inspiration and insight into the art of assemblage. Students used drywall mud and other found objects in order to add texture to their projects.

Art 3- For the past two weeks, students have been working on individual study projects. Students chose their own projects. We alternate between me assigning them a project and them coming up with their own project. This gives students more freedom to explore the many aspects of art!
