Abstract Letter Designs

It was a busy week at school, but I just wanted to post a few things that are in progress in the artroom at BHS. I will post final projects as soon as I can get photos of the finished works.  This project is a design project that involves choosing a theme and using words and abstracting the words by overlapping them, placing them in different directions, and then painting the designs on canvas boards.

Value Study of the Sheet

So here are some of the results of the value study of the sheet from the first of school along with a couple of pictures of students hard at work. I've been so busy, I haven't had time to add more pictures of projects. But I have pictures, I just need to get caught up on the dreaded 'paperwork' (grading), and will be posting pictures of projects soon.  For now, here is my Art 3 class working on their value studies of the sheet.

Colorful Portfolios...

...to hold the artwork that will be created this year have been made by my 2nd, 3rd, & 4th year art students.  Each year I begin the semester by giving them a few days to make and decorate their portfolios.  My only requirement is that they have their name on it and that they create a design. Some students really like to spruce it up. Shown here are few examples of their portfolios. We just use poster board, paint or markers, and yarn to tie the poster boards together and the students add their creativity.  Next I will be working with Art 1 to create their Portfolios.
