Drawing & Painting I students just finished up their abstract watercolor project. After completing a technique sheet to try out all the different techniques, students used a warm cool color scheme to create these watercolor paintings. They could incorporate as many techniques as they wanted while dividing up the painting by using warm and cool colors.
Drawing & Painting II period 1 just handed in their linoleum print projects. Working from observation students created line drawings of various plants and transformed their drawing into a black and white image. Each student created a series of print from a simple black and white print to more experimental prints such as hand coloring, printing on a collage surface to mixing different inks. They also learned how to use a printing press.
So today is April 1st! There is no way I could have forgotten that... as my AP students cleverly worked with some of my colleagues to cover my classroom in insects, reptiles and other creepy crawly creatures. There are even a few of these little buggers hanging from the ceiling. Perhaps I could work these into our next project...um?
