The art classes are now getting back into the full swing of things and the art room is starting to fill with all kinds of exciting new work. The advanced art students spent their first warming up by reviewing different kinds of drawing. Here are a few examples of their work:
Basic art classes have been learning about drawing using basic shapes as well as shading with pencils. 7th graders have been having fun drawing some cartoons and 8th graders have been studying optical illusions and perspective. The ceramics students have been having a lot fun finishing some pinch pot creations and have also been building with coils (they don’t enjoy that as much!).
This week was Arts in Education week across the country and in honor of this week the students used their sketchbook assignment to show why art is important to them. They came up with some great ideas. Why do you think art is important?
