Advanced Art

Throughout the semester, Advanced Art experimented and created projects using ink, graphite, recycled material, acrylics, and a variety of mediums for sketchbook assignments. I greatly appreciated their willingness to try out unique ideas as taking home art supplies and sharing with other classes was a challenge, their time spent thinking outside the box for projects, and their desire to learn and grow in our time spent together as well.

We hope you enjoy!

Overlapping objects painting

While only being able to take home 2 paint tubes, we got creative with our limited supplies and students created an overlapping objects painting using only 3 colors. They strategically placed their objects and dividing lines and planned out where each color would go to create some unique and intriguing pieces.

Inspired Ink Project

Students researched various artists that inspired them who use ink as their main art medium. They then chose one specific artist to focus on and were asked to draw any image they wanted while imitating that artist's style.

Students created their own still life using various objects at home that they composed and photographed. They then practiced the different graphite techniques they'e learned to draw their still life using graphite on gray paper.

Optical Illusions

Once again, students focused more on mixing colors and painting craftsmanship using only their 2 tubes of paint and blending skills to create 3d optical illusions.
