Drawing & Painting II students are working on the color pencil portion of their mixed media project. Students are able to choose between techniques as they approach the different parts of the bamboo. They each completed a color pencil technique sheet and some even created custom color charts to use.
Drawing & Painting I Period 5 & 2 Just completed their marble drawings in colored pencil. Using a variety of colored pencil techniques and their knowledge of color theory students focused on the wide variety of value and color within each marble. Students worked on a gray paper as their base, creating bright highlights using Prismacolor brand colored pencils. The waxy nature of the pencils allowed for smooth fades to create the transparent, smooth surface of the marble.
AP Art Studio Drawing students finished their colored pencil drawings of apples and pears. Students focused their attention on the details, colors and textures found in their still life. Using a wide variety of colored pencil techniques, they were able to recreate the textures on their objects. Many students tackled their fears of drawing objects that are transparent and reflective. The fabric proved to be a challenge for many but with a bit of practice everyone got it! Great work! These pieces will be added to their Breadth section of their AP Art Exam. Click on the AP Studio Art: Drawing tab above to see all of them.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
