PHS Art student, Tatiana has received a Merit Award in the Art Administrators of New Jersey Emerging Artist High School Art Exhibition. Tatiana's pastel box self portrait was on display at Kean University. As a Merit Award winner she will move on to the next level of competition and will be submitting her portfolio for review for additional honors.
Some times we need to stop and "stretch" our creativity! We often do this in our journals. Drawing & Painting II students created these fantastic painted pages using tempera paint, collage, dollies, and some inspiration from the future. Students wrote letters to themselves that will be opened in a year and are contained in a pocket on their journal page. Students then had the opportunity to go to Futureme.org and type their letter in so that it could be emailed to them at a date they determine. The letter could be sent in a year, two or even fifty years later.
Yesterday my AP Studio Art Drawing students participated in a round robin critique of their concentration work. Each student displayed their work that they completed so far this year and placed it some where in the room. The room quickly became filled with artwork! Then each student went around to each persons portfolio and gave feedback for them using post it notes. Students were looking at the AP Rubric for concentrations and formulating valuable suggestions for each of their classmates. It was wonderful to see students responding to each others work and coming up with fantastic feedback. When all was said and done, students collected their post it notes and took time to look over all of the comments.
Drawing & Painting II students are working to finish up their linoleum prints. Some are carving, while others are printing. It is certainly an energetic way to start out our week.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
