7th and 8th Grade Art

We began the year as we have always begun, with observational drawings. I certainly appreciate the warm, dry weather and have lived in Northeast Ohio long enough to know we have to seize the opportunity to go outside whenever possible to draw! We focused our observations on the actual school building this year after having a discussion about identifying features of our unique school. Some artists drew the entire building while others focused on details of the building. A sense of place and identity certainly came through in the drawings. The artwork is currently displayed throughout the second floor of the school. We continued the observational work drawing elements of nature and moved directly into our current project of a long term still-life project. I will tell you more about that next week.
