The seventh grade students created an artwork inspired by famous Op Artists' Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. They used Riley's converging lines pattern for the background and Vasarely's spheres for the foreground to create their own optical illusion.
Students in the after school art club program used canvas board and acrylic paint to create their own winter scene. They learned how to blend paint directly on the canvas to create new tints of blue and purple.
Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is an art form that involves rolling and gluing thin strips of paper into various shapes and arranging them to form designs. Quilled paper designs can be very simple or as complex as you have the dexterity and patience for. The 2nd and 3rd grade students learned how to roll their own paper coils, and used the coils to design a personalized emoji.
For our second lesson this year, the fifth grade students learned about the artist Pablo Picasso. Picasso is known for his abstract and cubist style portraits. After a discussion on cubism, students drew their own portrait in the style of Picasso using oil pastels. Students also used a blending technique with the oil pastels to create new colors within their artwork.
