7th Grade Art

Today in class we did a live human figure drawing. This was done in 90 seconds using gestural line. We did two of these drawings and then we started to explore the Oculus Rift by using an art app called the Google Tilt Brush.

If you missed today you missed a lot of fun art!

We are  halfway through! Spring is just right around the corner!

ELP Project

The 8th Grade Students are starting their Extended Learning Projects. The students have a choice to create an artwork that celebrates an artist that is created in the style of their chosen artist. The students could also choose to create an original artwork based on the Doodle 4 Google theme:
I show kindness by...
The students can choose from any type of medium or how the artwork will be displayed: hung on the wall, mobile (hung from the ceiling), or a free standing sculpture.

For this project students will be creating a Google Site that will showcase the progress of their artwork, along with art history of a chosen artist. It will also include a home page describing their art and their Doodle 4 Google 50 word essay.
