More Light Graffiti

Created these light graffiti paintings using a long camera exposure and some big, fat glow sticks. 

Light Graffiti

Stencils.. They're not just for breakfast anymore.. or, uh spray paint. They work really well when painting with light. This is our first round of light graffiti painting. The first three images were actually painted using a cellphone. The rest were painted with glow sticks.

Green Art!

So much of what we hear about in art today is the talk of green art…. Recycled bottle projects and the like. Well, this project is truly green art. Birdseed Stencils!

We started this project today by creating a series of frames and placed them in the grass.

We filled the frames with what else? Fill dirt! Cheap fill dirt from my favorite place to purchase art supplies, Lowes Home Improvement.

Next we recycled our spray paint stencils. We placed them over the dirt then sprinkled them with birdseed.

Water well... and wait for it to grow!

Stencils : Round 1



Art One Sands Period 1 class is finishing up their stencils. We put n emphasis on using different textures by using a variety of different types of background layers including newspaper, torn up books and magazine collage. We also experimented with spray painting through different types of fabrics to create different textures as well. Take a look!
