Land and Sea

It takes time to learn to control watercolor and make it do what you want.  The students have done a wonderful job with a difficult medium!  The work shows their understanding of contrast, paint mixing and composition along with the Elements and Principles of Design.

Abstract Observations

The inspiration for these wonderful paintings is all around the classroom.  The students picked a part of their environment to observe, draw, and finally paint.  The results are these colorful abstract compositions filled with shapes, patterns, colors, and movement.

Patterns, Letters, and Numbers

“Things the mind already knows,” Jasper Johns.

This quote and work of Johns is the inspiration for these drawings. Pattern, movement, color, contrast, and repetition are all important in these wonderful oil pastels.

Selfies!

The student’s used their observational skills to create a realistic pencil drawing. This drawing was traced onto velum and color was added to create an expressive selfie. Wonderful patterns and colors, plus a sense of fun make these drawing special.

 Falling Leaves

In the first lesson, see below, the students became aware of the edges of the paper and their importance in a composition.  Keeping this in mind, the kids used  leaves as their models and made these wonderful mixed media drawings.  Using both oil pastel and watercolor crayons they created different textures and colors and some of the children worked with compliments (opposite colors on the color wheel) to add excitement to their drawings.  These playful compositions have a sense of movement and rhythm.

Symmetrical Masks

Using  white paint the students divided their papers into symmetrical masks. The shapes and spaces created by the white lines are filled with colors made from white, and two complimentary colors; yellow and violet, or blue and orange, or green and red. Compliments add excitement to a painting but they also combine to create a wide range of values. When the painting was almost complete a bit of black could be used to add texture and detail. I  encouraged the kids to blend the paints on the paper. They succeeded in mixing unusual browns, grays, deep greens, purples, and rusts. Creating these abstract paintings taught the students how to configure a composition that uses the entire paper. These wonderful paintings are formally balanced and the spaces made by the white lines are interesting and unusual. The results of all this creativity is artwork filled with lines, shapes, spaces, values, colors, rhythm, movement, balance, and texture all organized into a strong composition that’s fun to view.
