Another art teacher posted the question on Facebook, "What are your students working on?" Here at South B, it's sort of a long list. That's because in the open art room, students might be working on all sorts of stuff and things. Autumn for example has been designing her characters, working primarily in MARKERS.
But Percy on the other hand, wanted to try out these WATERCOLORS to create this portrait. It's a present, so shsssss, don't tell.
A few students selected to work with the NEEDLE & THREAD. This week's Table was ugly dolls.
Brea wanted to try out the new CRAYPEN we just got in. She is using the craypen to create the black outline of a stained glass window on plastic. She is also mixing the new colored inks in with glue to create the colored glass part. Lots of experimenting with this one.
Meanwhile, we found some SHAVING CREAM in the closet. Since nobody wanted to shave, we decided to learn how to marble with it.
Brooke has been working on her EYES.
Hope has been working on with MIXED MEDIA including colored pencil with pastel.
Ruby was working on a Mega Man Legacy collection which....
inspired Max to BECOME Mega Man.
Of course, that's just a small look at some of the things our student's are working on this week. We also worked with printing, etching, oil paints, cardboard, Photoshop, pencil, styrogami, collage, charcoal, candle making, and a few students drew all over my whiteboard...
