Art Department News - Grade 8 Paintings

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 7, 2019 7:32:29 AM

Over the last few weeks, we have been so busy with our IB Senior Art Show and Gala that the focus has been on my Senior Art students. Meanwhile, back in the Art room, my Grade 8 Art students have been very busy with their acrylic paintings. This group arrived in my Art class at the end of January, and for many of these students, this would be their first formal Art class. As an Art teacher, my goal is to give them a good solid background in using different media and to learn different skill techniques so they feel comfortable enough to create. With this painting project, we concentrated on the materials, composition (close up), blending and colour. All of the students’ paintings are included so we can see that they all should be very proud of their achievements. Excellent job!! Now, onto working with clay!
