Spring classes start February 2, 2021
This week we experimented using an easy two color blending technique.
Two weeks ago, we looked at several Matisse paintings from a wonderful book that I have called Rooms With A View.
After looking though several different paintings, my student decided on The Studio In Nice (a great choice)!
The challenge was to really observe and see where each new color started and ended.
Coming up... 2 color linoleum prints!
Here are some materials that we used this week.
Push Plates (black plastic squares) I ordered these from Blick.
The top print is the first print. The bottom print is a ghost print.
painting, drawing and print making in Pasadena
art lessons in Alhambra
This print is actually two prints. One on top of the other.
So the idea behind this, is to find a few of these words in a magazine and cut them out. Next week we'll collage them onto the prints to make a multi media piece of art.
This activity was done with the younger group.
On Wednesday, March 29th I am excited to substitute teach two art class for Sky Mountain Charter School.
Example that I will show to the class. The activity is to draw ten geometric shapes. Fill the space in between with organic shapes. I found this on Pinterest. Originally this was done in paint, but I decided to use oil pastel because the lesson is only 90 minutes.
* Not only is this a lesson in geometric and organic shapes it's also a lesson in primary and secondary colors and line.
Mix two primaries to make a cool secondary color (It's the purple star shape)!
I love the black squiggles inside of the shapes!
My example to show to the class. This is another great Pinterest activity that I am stealing.
The middle school group got to do this activity.
Going over the glue patterns and lines with a Q-tip.
Cutting around the lines and through the cardboard was a challenge.
After the glue dried we were able to spray with glue adhesive. This was to help the tinfoil stick to the cardboard.
After adding color with Sharpies.
The final product! Snaketastic!
