Thank you for checking out my teaching blog. I plan to update this site every couple of weeks so that students and parents can keep track of each course and it's progression.
Foundations of Art:
Students need to bring a 9"x12" sketchbook to class so that they may complete drawing exercises.
Students are midway through finishing the Cut Paper Project. The objective of this assignment is to create symmetry in their design using positive and negative shapes. Students should focus on having good craftsmanship.
Students need to bring a small sketchbook to class so that they may do research and work-out ideas for projects. Students are required to turn in their folded paper projects this week. (A-block was due on Monday and H-block is due on Tuesday.) The focus for the next two weeks will be on composition, and the illusion of depth on a two dimensional space. Students will be required to take notes on the class lectures.
Students need to bring a small sketchbook to class so that they may do research and work-out ideas for projects. The first section of the class is "Painting Boot Camp." Students were asked to complete 2 out of three challenging painting assignments.
1.) Painting From Observation
2.) Painting Using Pattern and Rhythm
3.) Painting Using Texture
All of the paintings require completing a preparatory drawing and color sample before carrying forth the final piece. Students must exhibit an aware of color harmony and compositional balance.
(A homework assignment will be assigned requiring the students to choose an artist who exemplifies the painting style of the assignment option that the student did not select.)
