Van Gogh flowers

6th graders learned all about Van Gogh! We learned about how he shows visible brush strokes, which is very different from other artists that we've learned about in the past, like Leonardo da Vinci.  We used oil pastels and white tempera paint to recreate the look of van highs brush strokes. Students were asked to draw flowers of the seasons in the style of Vincent Van Gogh!!

1 point perspective

8th graders learned about one point perspective. After a few classes of practicing different perspective drawings, students were asked to create their own perspective scene of their choice. I just love what kids can come up with when given the chance and the tools!!

Pinch pot creatures!!

6th graders created ceramic creatures using the pinch pot hand building technique. They had to create the body from a pinch pot, but also were asked to include a slab and coil somewhere on their creature. In our district, 6th grade is the first time our students ever used clay and I think they turned out great!!
