This is a really nice oil painting, don't you think? The photo isn't so great with the shine from the lights but once you get past my shabby photography, its a well done work of art.
So why the blog title, the good and the bad you ask? The painting is obviously good. I agree but what you can't tell from looking at the painting is that it is by Gracie, one of the AP Art students. You may remember Gracie from previous posts. Her concentration was photo digitization. Well she decided she didn't want to do digital photography. It was boring. so she decided to change her concentration.... with Three Weeks Before the Deadline! So, that could be bad. Stay tuned.
Claude was rocking the pencil drawings so we gave him Prisma colored pencils. So he rocked the Prisma colored pencils so we gave him oil paint. Now he is rocking the oil paint. Good! A little too good. Like, how about you take AP Art next year good. And that is good.
The Bad? Copyright infringement. Claude is gonna have to lose the copyright images and replace them with his own ideas and photo references. I think he is up for the challenge. Stay tuned.
This group of three has been developing characters for D&D. That's good. First, collaboration is always good. They're are totally engaged in the creation. They even brought me in on it. My character is 1/2 orc and a bard who plays music. He's an orc with a sensitive heart that writes love songs.
The bad: Have anyone ever tried to explain the rules of this game to you? It's crazy amounts of stuff going on. The other bad is that I'm not sure if my sensitive orc is going to last very long.
Our Table Tuesday was tie dye and, by student request, we also added reverse tie dye. What's that you ask? It's bleaching a dark shirt instead of coloring a white shirt. So obviously good when a student requests an addition to the Table. It's all student-directed after all.
The bad: The smell of bleach. also, the smell of vinegar which is used to stop the bleaching process. so the art room smells like a pickle went for a swim in a community pool.
