Art News from Around the School and Around the World…
And the “Art Star” of the Month is... I’m happy to announce that the “Art Star” award for December goes to Jason J. (Rm. 307). Please assist me in congratulating Jason for all the hard work, creativity, and independence that he has shown over the past month. Great Job!! Jason’s “Ice Skating Diorama” can be seen at right.
Although we don’t have very much snow covering the ground outside, there is plenty in the art room. Students have been creating artwork that depicts cute penguins sliding down mountains of it (see examples below). The images were created by layering white, blue, and silver glitter tempera paint over “cool” colored crayons (green, blue, and purple). While the paint is still wet, students sprinkled white circles (cut using a hole punch) onto the blue sections of their paintings. After their background paintings were dry, students used various colored pieces of construction paper and templates to create the penguins and their sleds. Skills: Cutting, Tracing, Gluing, Painting, Masking, and Coloring. Two examples of the completed “Sledding Penguin” paintings.
lft: Ocean P. & Rt: Daniel L. (Both from Rm. 310).
“Snow Globe” Collage Over the last few weeks students have also been hard at work creating 2-D “Snow Globe” collages using many of the art techniques and materials that they have learned about over the last year, including decoupage, collage, coloring, cutting and gluing. These “Snow Globes” are intended to be used as possible future Noteworthy Card designs. (Below are some examples of the completed project.) 1.
The “Snow Globes” above and additional examples are on display in the South Wing Hallway (near the Art Room - 416). Please stop by and take a look. Below is a list of students that have their art on the wall. Daniela G. (Rm. 108) Dominic C. (Rm. 306) Frank A. (Rm. 120) #3 Joel M. (Rm. 108) #1
