The 6th grade students learned about the art of hand casting. They looked and discussed what it means to CAST something, and then looked at all the different career fields that use the casting process - from the arts and entertainment, to geology and archeology, to dentistry and medical (prosthetics, etc), to engineering and manufacturing. Afterwards, student set off casting their partner's hand using plaster strips.
Students examined the history behind color theory and its importance in the art world. Students learned about the various color schemes, including: primary, secondary, tertiary, warm, cool, analogous, complementary and monochromatic. Using color mixing techniques with only the primary colors (red, yellow, blue), students created a radial balance painting. This artwork allowed students to see how colors react with each other and make educated color choices in their compositions that might come later in their art career.
Our 8th grade students (from room, 318) created these wonderful superhero drawings using the grid method.
Bateman's Art Club students (4th -8th grade) created their very own stenciled t-shirts this year. Students first drew their desired image onto card stock. Afterwards, they used an X-Acto knife to cut out the positive space in the image. Once they were done with this process, they used a fabric spray to create the images you see below. Nice job, Art Club!
