Bugs and human anatomy

Hey everyone,

  Artists in Mr. C’s art classes began the year by drawing insects, plants, and animals that live in the Ebenezer wetland behind the school.  Many students have been hiking in the wetland to see the creatures that we have been drawing.  We have discussed how wetlands impact our environment.

  We started drawing the human anatomy in February.  First, we drew our hands in detail, then our faces in a portrait.  Some students put the hands onto the face projects for special effects.

   We are getting ready for our art show over the next few weeks.  Everyone is invited to see student artwork on Thursday, April 11th, 4-6 at MVES.  We will have artists set up in the front demonstrating their work for students to ask questions.  Some work may be on sale as well.  We are also having a book sell in the library.

  Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Mr. C.

 Students in Mr. C’s visual art classes are designing “dream parks”.  We examined public, state, and national parks and discussed our favorite parts of park areas.  Students drew foreground, middle ground and back ground in many of their designs.  Some students drew pumpkin patches.  We drew horizons and vanishing points as well.

   After Thanksgiving students will begin their “Dream Architecture” or ” Dream Cities”.  We will discuss and examine famous cities and architecture.  Some students will build 3 dimensional designs using various materials. Students may draw home, office, school, apartments as well as many other possible architectural outcomes.
