The two amazing graphite drawings above were completed by 8th graders Hao Li (left), and Sydney Morgan (right).
I am loving this new project! Typically, I never do the same project with my students more than once...but this will be an exception. These sculptures combine Fired Clay and basket-making to create these interesting Sculptures. Currently, I am trying to figure out a way to add sea shell embellishments to the banding and within the weaving.
The student works pictured were completed by Rose Cabrera (left), and Kate Chaplin (right).
This past semester, students in my classes really loved a project we worked on revolving around the television series “Street Art Throwdown” from the Oxygen network. Students were so excited about the show that they were binge watching the series at home before we could finish it in class. Several students even asked for the series as Christmas presents!
The other day I reached out to one of the artists from the show and after a conversation via social media about his newfound celebrity status among my students, what it was like being on TV, our perils with color blindness, and our own art...he sent me the video below. What a super-cool guy!
