Here’s some visual proof of the progress I made this week in my new art room.
So thankful for all of the help from my kids Alec and Rachel and my wife Mikki. I think she was wondering if I was ever coming home this past week!
I started with 300+ boxes now moved and unpacked with most supplies having found a home in this wonderful new 21st Century studio/classroom for my k-6 students to explore the world of art!
Sixth grade students recently completed their painting projects that are now on display at the Art Junction in New Haven.
Students added color to their paintings after adding collage elements to their work.
Everyone enjoyed the spray painting elements that were added to their images.
Each group added final shapes of color to their images to bring their paintings to a conclusion.
Students worked as a team to add many layers of information to their mixed media paintings.
Here are some examples of their work.
I hope you will take time to stop by the Art Junction to view their art exhibition!
6th grade students added a collage element to their painting project recently.
Students added cut-up elements of a graphic of their names to their paintings.
Everyone worked together as they added the designs to their painting as a third layer.
Students learned to use new materials as they fixed their graphics to the painting with matte medium.
This week’s studio session really pushed students to explore new elements of art in exciting ways not explored before.
