Here's what were working on in all the classes:
Painting is working on creating a series. The goal is to create three or more artworks that go together based on theme, subject, media, palette or any combination.
Intro to 3D students are working on a collaborative artwork. We discussed the idea of collaboration (the action of working with someone to produce or create something) and looked at different ways that artists work together. Some groups are working on one artwork that is completed together, some groups are completing individual works that will be put together in the end and some groups are creating more of a series based on a theme.
Eighth graders are also working on their final artworks. Students were given freedom of subject, media and size on this artwork. The only stipulations were that they had to research a theme and come up with multiple ideas that fit that theme. Many students are creating artworks with very close personal connections - showing personal interests and hobbies. Lots of good artworks!
