Hannah likes to draw wolves... like, a lot. She likes to draw wolves a lot! So I was like, "Why don't you draw eight wolves and then you could animated them and make it look like it was walking?" and she was like, "OK" and so she did and this is the result. I like how the ears wiggle.
The day before spring break we thought it might be fun to have a little egg decorating contest. So we brought in a bunch of eggs, yes, real eggs, and gave each student and egg to decorate. We had three categories, zentangle design, character design, art history design. We got a lot more characters and zentangles but it was all good. We got enough decorated eggs to fill this whole case and part of another.
The other Hannah started this stippling of horses. she hasn't finished it yet. She started before break and hasn't worked on it since returning. i'll have to ask her what she did with it. Maybe she just needs reminding. Things started can become things done.
This is a huge cup of soda that goes with the large fries and hamburger that was already completed. This piece, which so far is only the wooden frame, has been designed and created by Hunter. Now it gets passed on to the other students in the group would will decide how to finish it up. Meanwhile, hunter is starting their next group piece which will be a skateboard ramp. Get 'er done.
Drew knows how to make a stencil.
This is another work by Morgan who is considering making these part of his AP concentration next year. The frame was created by Hunter.
Here at The Art of South Brunswick High School, NC, we incorporate the Teaching for Artistic Behavior or TAB philosophy in our classroom. TAB states that the student is the artist and the art room is their studio.
We believe students should be involved in the entire artistic process including designing, creating, and reflecting on their work.
It is our job as teachers to present ideas and concepts, demonstrate techniques and materials, and encourage and support our students to create and produce works of art at the highest level.
