This week the beautiful ceramic cupcakes got a little "frosting". The students carefully added color and texture using acrylic paint, painstakingly filling in each and every inch of their cupcake box.
We had cupcakes based on everything from iron man to minions.
These little pots are not only fun, but useful as well! They all open up to reveal a cavity that can hold small objects. The students put a lot of work into these, I had to feature a ton! Voting will open up Friday, winners will be crowned Monday during class.
The piece on the right showed amazing use of concept and texture, especially in the intricate stump lines. The foliage on the top was wonderfully painted and has a lot of variety in color. Make sure to click through the gallery below to view more stunning cupcake designs!
The sixth grade art class has been working on a fun watercolor project this week. Each student is creating their own "Life Map" that illustrates different important events using a map, symbols and a key. They were able to build on the watercolor skills we learned last week, and apply them to their own artwork. Make sure to click the images to view them full size!
The 7th grade art class has also been working in watercolor, each student is using 2-point perspective to design and illustrate their own dream tree house. Some of the students have really taken to the perspective drawing and created some amazing 3D designs! They will be working on them through the end of the week, the final project is due Friday. Photos coming soon!
The elementary grades have been split into two groups for this week. The 3rd grade classes are working in colored pencil to create their own color wheels. We first learned about primary colors, then used protractors and rulers to create the base for our wheels. The 4th and 5th grade classes are starting a multi-week project that will result in a crazy hair portrait. This week they learned the basics of portraiture, completing a self portrait. Next week the students will be adding color and some fantastic straw blown hair!
