Drawing & Painting II are moving along with their cropped drawing of flowers. After completing rough drawing and thumbnails to work out the composition, they are testing colors. Using their previous knowledge of color theory, students are matching colors and textures found in their flowers and plants.
AP Art Drawing students are working with color pencils. After a group demonstration of techniques using layering and basic color theory students are working to create the texture, values and depth of color found in the apples. Students should be onto the silverware today. They are layering several colors to create the look of the metal while paying attention to the sharp reflections found on each utensil.
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.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
