Egyptian Art For SMAF

by e10391

If you went to the Seward Music and Arts Festival this past weekend, you got to see this Egyptian themed art in real life!  This truly is a community centered event, with Seward El, Middle and High School students all helping by creating decorations.  Here are some of the High-schoolers pieces:

Cairns!

by e10391

IMG_3819
Seward High has adopted a new block schedule, allowing for longer class periods, which suits art class well. We have begun the year exploring making art in and with our natural environment with the creation of cairns.
We started the first day connecting art to problem solving by building marshmallow and uncooked spaghetti noodle structures, aspiring for both height and beauty.
IMG_3704
We then watched the documentary about natural artist Andy Goldsworthy, Rivers and Tides. If you have not checked out his work, you should! He creates outdoor pieces using icicles, stones, leaves, flowers, sticks, thorns and mud.
105329
Then we learned about cairns in a historical and global context. Humans have built cairns since ancient times, using them as landmarks, burial monuments, defense walls, for ceremonial purposes, to located buried objects and to mark trails.
We went to Jap Creek and built our own cairns in the sunshine. Here are some photos!

Middle School Watercolor Paintings

by e10391

In my Middle School art class, we experimented with different watercolor techniques – dropping salt and alcohol onto wet paint, squishing saran wrap and tissue paper onto it, scratching it with toothpicks… After this students came up with their own compositions and used whichever techniques they wanted!

Klimt Inspired Scratchboard Collages

by e10391

Klimt-logo

Detail from Klimt Painting

SMS Students studied Austrian artist Gustav Klimt.  His work is filled with gold, flattened, forms filled with geometric shapes.  This stylization is juxtaposed by realtively realistically rendered faces and skin.  We replicated Klimt’s style by using gold scratchboard and photos from magazines.  I think they turned out pretty cool!

Ceramic Hands

by e10391

For our first project in SHS’s Ceramics Class and SMS Art Class we went back to basics – the human hand.  Hands have been connected to our personal identities and to our humaness since we lived in caves.  Seward High Students took inspiration from henna designs, hand tattoos, folk art, and anataomy to name a few.  Great job!

2nd Quarter Art

by e10391

There is a large variety of art here from the High School.  Some of these pieces were focused on Art History, learning about an artist and recreating his or her famous painting.  Some of the art is focused specifically on Vincent Van Gogh, because we recently got to go to an exhibit focused on his work at the Anchorage Museum!  Thanks so much to the Seward PTA and the Seward Arts Council for your help in funding this trip!  The linocuts were based on Life Drawings SHS Students did.  None of these were traced, all were drawn by hand!  Hope you enjoy, I have had great students this semester!
