Radial Symmetry Projects


Students have finished recreating Greek Pottery Designs using Radial symmetry and earth colors.

For those students who have still not turned in their projects and evaluations, they may still hand them in tomorrow February 13 throughout the day.

For our next project Egyptian Papyrus students will need to bring a roll of gauze and a tablespoon of instant coffee.  We will begin to work on the project Friday February 16th.

The word “value” is used a lot when speaking about art. And with good reason.  Value is is an element of art. Value deals with the lightness or darkness.  Since we see objects and understand objects because of how dark or light they are, value is incredibly important to art.

Value deals directly to light.  We see things because light reflects off of objects and goes into our eyes.  Our mind processes the light and rationalizes what we are seeing.  Without light, we cannot see anything. In order to draw or paint in a way that creates an illusion of what we normally see, we must fully understand light and how it reacts on surfaces.  Value is the key to the illusion of light.  This is why value is so incredibly important to drawing and painting.

Students are using a cubist style drawing as an introduction to value. They are creating non- color value uising ebony pencils and drawing paper as a medium.

Greek Mythology Project


Greek pottery, the pottery of the ancient Greeks, important both for the beauty of its forms and decoration and for the light it sheds on the development of Greek pictorial art. Because fired clay pottery is highly durable, and few or no Greek works in wood, textile, or wall painting have survived, the painted decoration of this pottery has become the main source of information about the process whereby Greek artists gradually solved the many problems of representing three-dimensional objects and figures on a flat or curved surface. The large number of surviving examples is also the result of a much wider reliance on pottery vessels in a period when other materials were expensive or unknown. The Greeks used pottery vessels primarily to store, transport, and drink such liquids as wine and water. Smaller pots were used as containers for perfumes and unguents.

Students are currently working on recreating this form of art using oil pastes as a medium.

Science Fair Display Boards

In collaboration with Science Class students will integrate subjects applying the principles of STEAM.

Students will use the template for the information required in their science class to create an engaging Science Fair Display board. They will apply the previously learned principles and elements of art.

Each student’s project is different therefore their display boards will show individuality and voice.
