Emphasize the Elements
We're back in the swing of it. For this first project, we are taking a look at the elements of art and how different artists emphasize different elements in their work. Each student selected an element that they wanted to emphasize and is creating a piece that well, emphasizes it.
The choice of medium was open though I suggested they consider selecting one they were familiar with for this first project. Don't worry, we'll be working outside out comfort zone soon enough :)
Above, emphasis on line using charcoal on wood.
So remember when I said they might want to start with a medium in their comfort zone? Well, that didn't last so long. Bailey is trying out oil pastel on canvas using baby oil and also baby powder. Her art smells really good.
