What’s up in the art room? (May 2022)

Check out some of our current projects happening in the art room and how they’re made!

Check out some of what we’ve been up to below!

This month students finished up their still life acrylic paintings! They have all been taking a lot of time and doing their best work on these still life paintings! They did an awesome job! We first learned about composition and arranging a still life, completing several thumbnail sketches of inanimate objects arranged in different ways. Students had the chance to arrange objects and form their own set-ups. The decided arrangement was then sketched out onto a canvas. Before painting we talked about the color wheel and making our own colors as well as exploring tints, tones, & shades & undertones! Students completed these paintings with a limited palette – only using primaries and black and white, mixing all of their colors!

We also have a new art room friend -“Winnie”, our new Standard Poodle puppy! Evidently she likes belly rubs!

This month was also full of classes at other locations! Some fun projects at the Seaford Library, the Art League in OC, Roaring Point Campground, Greenwood Library & face painting! Check out more upcoming classes here!

I was also lucky enough to be able to complete these two pet portraits in May! “Waffles”, 8″x10″, in pastel. And “Buddy”, 8″x10″, in watercolor and pen!

Students also completed these fun pieces of art! Mixed media collage butterflies, pencil drawings, & Watercolor with pen!
