What’s up in the art room? (October 2021)

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

This past month flew by! Check out some of what we’ve been up to below!

Students continued to work on their awesome landscapes all month, learning what a landscape is, and created dimensional & depth filled paintings, incorporating the use of horizon lines, perspective, background, middle ground, & foreground. Older students were asked to include several layers and work with more details on the structure/design as well as include light and shadow with their painting and coloring. Students were also inspired by the Fauvism style of art which makes use of bright, bold, expressive colors! They completed their layered landscapes in acrylic and oil pastels to achieve these awesome pieces! They are doing a great job planning, designing, cutting, painting & shading, to execute their layered landscapes! We’re excited to hang and display these pieces at a local restaurant next month!

Radial Mandala designs on glass! Students finished up working on their radial mandala designs – so many cool pieces! Check out last months post for more info on this project and keep an eye out for a DIY on this project to be posted soon!

What’s in your cup? Students worked on how to draw cylinders and shade them in. Next they will create a drawing of their cup, decorating it with patterns and designs, filling it with a favorite drink! This project will be created with mixed media!

Impossible Shapes! Impossible shapes are a type of optical illusion – they can be drawn, however, could never exist in 3D form. Students practiced drawing an impossible Penrose triangle, and impossible square, before choosing which one they would like to paint. They also completed a color wheel and choose a color harmony to utilize in their painting.

Acrylic Pumpkin Paintings! Students worked on drawing spheres and turning them into pumpkins. They included light and shadow, completing value scales and working on shading. They drew their pumpkins and mixed their own colors to create shades of orange for their final pumpkin paintings!
