As always, there are a lot of different things happening here at South B. First up, Isabella created an illustration in this month's issue of SchoolArts Magazine. Now she is a published artist. She famous! Click here to see the article.
Austin is trying his hand at oil painting for the first time. He went with a classic, Marilyn Monroe.
Claude is rocking the Prisma colored pencils, learning to blend like a beast!
Mandy decided to try out this week's Table; pinatas. Dinosaur pinata in the works.
Trip is designing another student's character in his style. It's much different but still looks like the original character (which i wish i had an image of to show the similarities and differences.)
Natalie worked on an etching of the pier on Oak Island. I think she should enter this piece into the NCMA Teen's Inspired contest. The theme this year is 'Home'.
Gail is also working on a piece for a contest; the Patriot Contest. She is also trying out the Prismas.
I dropped my Popsicle on the floor and it melted. JK. Another pour painting in the works.
This is our second year offering AP Art at South B. This year, we are offering both AP Studio Art as well as AP 3D Art, so that's cool. Last year we had 14 AP students enter and pass the AP Studio portfolio exam. This year we have 12 students working on their portfolios. Most have completed the Breadth section and have completed a good percentage of the Concentration. Here's a look at a few of the student's Sustained Investigations...
"My concentration is a series of original works of art symbols inspired by tribal art and patterns found in different cultures. There is emphasis on the darkness and also movement and balance. "
"My concentration is a series of animal shape-shifters living on an imaginary island. I've placed them in different positions/perspectives and backgrounds. Some of the animals are interacting with their human counterparts, all done in a mix of watercolor and colored pencil."
"My concentration is a series of Crow/Ravens. With each Image I started with a drawing/painting using traditional materials. I then imported those art works into Photoshop where I digitally edited each one. My projects depict the beauty of crows through their actions, such as flying patterns while exploring new techniques."
"My concentration is a series of digitally manipulated photographs with appropriated from iconic movies and TV shows. Friends who share a common interest are the models for my photos. The photos incorporate juxtaposition by exchanging props and settings in contrary an unexpected ways."
The photos posted here are samples of experiments created as Graci explores the techniques she will use for her final concentration pieces.
