Fun Day

Fun Day was Art Day! We started the day by making grayscale watercolor designs that will be put together into a larger painting. Then we made our own person emblem that will be shown around the school.

Jonathan’s father, who is a graphic artist at Sony, came in to share with us how to sketch characters. We started with Tim Burton’s Jack Skellington and then progressed to making our own characters. He was such a great teacher and helped us with many new techniques. The final characters have been properly photographed and will be put on a website for everyone to see and then framed for our bulletin board.

The final art of the day was to draw eyeballs and hide them in various places around the school. Have you seen any??

Watch the video of the character Mr. Teiler made.


Random Art

The past two weeks we have talked about ‘random art. Can art be random and happen by chance? Or, must it follow rules and be well-planned? Following some ideas from Jean Arp, the students created these beautiful string art pieces.
