7B - Art intervention with Eyes

Art Transforms. In this instance art transformed normal, everyday objects into playful creatures. The seventh grade students walked through the halls of the school with two foam balls in their hands. When they saw a potential object to transform they tried the eyes on it. Sometimes the effect was magical. Sometimes it wasn't. When they found a good fit, they taped them on. Art is magic.

KL - Heart Pattern Painting

The kindergarteners examined a variety of techniques for drawing hearts. Each student employed one heart drawing technique for their painting. Then they considered pattern as they were painting their hearts. It was such a simple prompt, I was not sure how they would come out. Both the process and the products turned out very lively and rich.

KL - Wax Resist Vehicles

The kindergarteners were getting to know how the wax resist technique worked with the trees. They continued to develop their understanding and skills by doing another wax resist piece. This time we thought about vehicles. They started with the wheels and worked upward. Each student developed a different kind of vehicle.

KL - Wax Resist Trees

The kindergarteners drew and painted these beautiful trees noticing how the trees looked different without their leaves. We talked about the structure of a tree with its trunk and branching limbs that diminish in size as they get further out from the trunk. They used oil pastels for the trees and tempera cakes for the background.
