This year, over thirty CMS students had worked published in the “Celebrating Art” book which recognizes the best in American student art. Many of you have asked if it is too late to purchase a book. Never fear! You can still purchase a copy of the book, just follow these directions:
1. email Ms. Z at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for your unique student login.
Sixth grade students: This week we are learning how to make our own Ming vases. If you missed a class (or you just need to review), please watch this video to catch up. This video tells you everything you need to get started. -Ms. Z.
Seventh grade students: This week we are working on a landscape collage. If you missed a class (or just need a review), please watch this video to catch-up. The video tells you exactly how to get started. -Ms. Z.
There can only be one word to define this week: BUSY! Well, maybe a bit of creative too.
The 8th graders will be honing their painting skills and utilizing watercolor in a more sophisticated manner. It should be both challenging and rewarding for students. Students will be completing an “ultra-realistic” drawing of animal (or object of their choice, should they choose), and creating an abstract, water-color based background. We will be focusing on using the fine-art words for watercolor colors. You can see our palette below:
The 7th graders are continuing on their batiks this week. We are hoping to begin the dip-dye part of this project on Thurday. Students are encouraged to bring an old Tshirt to wear OVER their uniform shirts (no changing etc.)., as the ink is supposed to be non-staining, but accidencts do occur. You can view one of the finished batiks from last year below:
The 6th graders are winding up their Typography projects this week (you can see an example below). Students will begin an project on Optical Illustions this week. The optical illusion project is a favorite of 6th graders!
