The third and fourth grade classes finished up a really fun watercolor tape resist project this week. My favorite part was watching them remove the tape from last week to reveal the stark white trees!
This week they added textures to the bark and details to the rest of the picture plane. The examples below are from my little third graders! They did so great on this project! I love how each painting is so unique and colorful.
I got to meet my new 6th and 7th graders this week! I am looking forward to getting to know all the fun students that have enrolled. For the first project, both classes are making their own hand-bound sketchbook! We printed paper using colorful potato stamps and prepared the pages. We begin the binding process on Monday and I could not me more excited! It is a difficult process, but definitely worth the results.
With my ceramics class over, I get to now teach a photography course! It is going to be fun to try out this new medium in the class room. The class is taught in the school photo lab, so we will be doing most of our work digitally. To get started for the new class, I had the students use the image banks I have (under the resource tab) to create inspiration boards. It was fun to talk about the basics of what makes a good photo, I look forward to starting shooting next week!
