For the final project in our unit Artist Observe, the students were tasked with creating a work of art based on observation. Topics included still life, scientific, figure drawing, landscape.. to name a few. Here are some of the things going on...
Colored pencil still life of a set of toys. She picked this because she thought each ball had a unique texture.
Sketches for the final to be (pun intended). Studying real insects.
Painting candles in acrylic. The plan is to light the candles to capture the effect of the light on the background.
Drawing a Dinocow? Well, it's still observational... i guess.
This photo doesn't do it justice but this recreation of a brick wall is a thick, relief created using joint compound.
Observing how the gum lines up?? I think??
Not really sure how the potters wheel is part of this unit but...
Uhm... they are making a unicorn horn.. I think we have strayed slightly from where we started.
