Today we had our first quiz! It covered the Elements of Design and Color Mixing and color terminology.

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) - Calaveras

We also started our first project. We will be creating Calavaras (Skulls) using Papier-mâché. In class we had a good start as we created our armature with a plastic grocery bag and used cardboard to create the eye sockets and upper cheek bones. We also used cardboard to create the jaw bone.

Next class we will be applying the Papier-mâché.

We will be trying to complete these by October 3, 2014 so that we may show them at the Stumptown Art Studio. A huge thanks goes to Señora Koch and her students for helping us organize this fantastic opportunity, and for educating us about Día de los Muertos!

If you missed today please come in during study hall, lunch, before school, or after school to make up your work.
