Drawing & Painting I students finished up their first paintings in acrylic. These monochromatic portraits emphasize the use of values to create the illusion of form. Using a single color and white students had to create 5 different values. Along the way they learned to mix enough paint (because we all know how hard it is to make the same color/vale twice), brush control, when to use a certain brush and managing paint supplies. These newly learned skills will be applied to our next project, painting candy. Students chose their color and pose to create these colorful expressions.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
