7th and 8th Grade Art
We continued to work on sketching out the landscapes to get the accurate map of information before the color mixing part begins. We are focusing on images from impressionist painters to see how colors are layered and mixed. The focus of this study is to learn how to mix paint colors and how the application of the paint changes the mood of the piece. Small squares were cut from their chosen color copy landscape to give a window of reference on the sketches. Some students have begun laying down their first layer of color. The face jugs are still drying and we are all anxious to get the dried pieces fired in the kiln.
