As part of their final exam, students were asked to Redo one of their previous projects. For the redo students could choose to remake their project better (demonstrating improved skills or techniques), or make it different (demonstrate a use of a different medium), or rearrange it (Demonstrate a different composition).
The redo project are currently in progress but here is a look at some of the ideas our artists are working on. Above, making it different. Recreating an original marker drawing and recreating the image using an actual hand.

Trying Something Different
Ashton painting the canvas blue and purple and then covered it with strips of tape. Later she decided to paint an eyeball. i'm not sure why. When it was dry, she removed the tape, which was fun to watch so I captured the process with these photos. Overall, its an interesting piece, don't you think?
This art one student decided to create a stencil of the artist Khalid. But first, she created this large collage. Hidden in the collage are titles and lyrics captured in both word and images. How cool is that? Look below to see what I mean.
Giant Tweety Bird
The giant reverse color Tweety Bird is now hanging in the cafeteria. Best way to end a weekly post!
The Art of South B: displaying the art from students at South Brunswick High School, NC
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.
