A message from the principal…
ART I classes will be starting a unit on color. They will make a color wheel as practice and then work with several color schemes. One of the main things they will concentrate on will be neutralizing colors. To neutralize a color you mix two compliments together creating mixtures that are a boundless array of “natures” palette. They will then study tree structures. Their culminating project will be to study the art of Grant Wood and create an original landscape of their own using foreground, middle ground and background and neutral colors.
ART 2 classes are also working on a color unit. After practicing on a color wheel they will create an original design for a CD using all 12 colors on the color wheel along with the 4 neutral colors and any other blended colors they choose. Their second project will be to create a landscape mosaic using torn magazine pictures. They will need to use multiple shades of blues for the sky, greens for the ground and browns for the trees to create a realistic picture. They will learn there are many tints, tones and shades of one color.
PROJECT ART students are working on a Surrealism unit. They will be creating a one point perspective picture with contrasting colors as their background. Next , we will take pictures of the students jumping, twisting and turning and make black and white copies on the copy machine. The students will cut out the pictures of themselves and glue them on their perspective pictures creating a “surreal” look as though they are floating in space or being pulled into a vortex. They will learn about art and dreams, emotions in your work and how to use body language in your art to create a message to your audience. Many Surreal artists and projects are planned for this unit. It will be a busy month.
