Some students are still working on the last day of school, trying to finish projects. However, most students are packing up and getting ready for summer fun! Before we go, I wanted to share a few of the final Seesaw posts. These students worked hard, developed skills, took risks, experimented and did all the other things artists do.
"This project was most definitely my most successful because I broke out of my old shading method where I would spend days just blending in the shading to a new, more cartoon like, blending style of just harsh change of color to make it POP more. I’m also working on doing more logo like things so I can build a good portfolio in order to get a logo designing job in my future." ~Lainey
"This piece that I call the spider web is the one that I learned the most from. This was one of the first pieces that I did when first starting this art class. I learned how we can be creative with just lines and dots to put together to form a oddly satisfying piece to look at. I would later use this technique in some other pieces but with some contrasting colors. This also transferred into some 3D pieces as well inside a fortune teller. " ~ Lexey
"I chose to redo this project because I didn’t like the first one. When I redid this piece I decided to make it bigger but couldn’t find paper big enough so we found a glass to paint on. I added more colors to it and tried blending some more into it. Once I was done I decided to shine a light through the glass to see how it would look. So now it is painted of a different canvas and a bigger image." ~ Amandelyn
"This was my most successful project! This project was an attempt in providing depth to one of my characters, I believe it is my best, as I used new skills that I had learned throughout the year to bring it all together!" ~ Trip
"This project was pretty successful and I learned how to blend better and how to work with oils. This helped me grow as an artist and showed me that oil painting is one of my new favorite ways to paint. this is the project that I grew the most from. This painting showed me new ways of painting and I enjoyed this project." ~ Percy
"I choose to redo my fabric sloth because I felt like I could have done better if I had chosen to do acrylic paint (which I like using that medium anyway). Simon is currently sitting in a case alone and I feel like he should have a friend join him, so her name is Sami. I had a really fun time creating her. I even repainting her like, 5 times, finding a brown is hard. I’ve come a long way since 6th grade and I hope to only improve" ~ Ashton
