In Art Theory 1 we talked about tint and shade and then had three days to complete an acrylic painting of two colored cylinders. I turned off all of the lights and they painted with the light coming in through our large, north looking windows.

This Studio Art Assignment is about mark-making with color pencils. I showed them work by Vincent Van Gogh, Kyle Ranson, and Alberto Giacometti. They had about 7 periods to work on them. The three shown are from 9th graders.

Junior Lauren Taniguchi is liking her Micron pens and doing some great drawings with them. These are some excerpts from her sketchbooks over the last couple of weeks. She is in Art Theory 2 and is assigned a different theme each week to do 5 sketches of. These drawings are from the clothes, feet, celebrity faces, and vegetation themes. I ask them to draw from life whenever possible.

My Photoshop class worked almost two weeks on making their own universe from scratch. I had them google their own planet-making tutorial and create their own little slice of space. Some tutorials are better than others. Try and find one that makes use of the "layer style options" instead of airbrushing.

This was the first theme based assignment that the Photoshop class did. I gave them the theme of "Familiar People in Unfamiliar Places". They had to take snapshots of friends or family and Photoshop them into an unfamiliar place. They spent about 1 1/2 weeks on it.
