We are all wrapped up...

This year I opted to handle the packing tape sculptures (which were ever so popular two years ago) as an after-school activity. We have only just started, so no pictures of any finished pieces just yet. Hope you will enjoy these images of the process in the meantime!

Self Portraits with Text

These are a lot like last year's Black History project. Unfortunately I didn't keep the background simple enough in the photos that the students worked from so... well... these don't quite have the impact that last year's portraits had. Oh well. There were still a few that had that "wow" factor (in my opinion). Have a look and let me know what you think!

Art I 2008-09 Pencil Drawings

Here are a few images of some of my students' recent work. The assignment was a value study of an animal from a photograph. I would have loved to bring my dog in to have them draw from life, but I doubt that would have gone over very well! I hope that you enjoy the pics. My kids worked really hard on these.
