Art 1- Watercolor Leaves & Soap Sculptures
We began the semester with a study of 2D and 3D Art/Media. Students first created a 2D watercolor painting and then carved a sculpture (3D) from soap. In the watercolor paintings, students used different techniques, such as splattering water and sprinkling salt onto their leaves to create visual texture. For our 3D project, all students carved a boat first and were then given the freedom to create an object of their choice- either relief sculpture or sculpture in the round!
Art 2- Pixilated Famous Paintings
Art 2 students started off the semester with a study on tints and shades. In order to practice mixing paint to create tints and shades, students chose a famous painting and pixilated it in Photoshop. They then created a grid to match the pixels and painting each square to complete a pixilated famous painting!
