Hero Painting

by e10391

Seward High Art Students made a painting of someone they admired and included a related quote, thinking about font and composition.  They drew these by hand and mixed their own colors!  Great job!

Alternative Energy Art

by e10391

Seward Energy Forum & Fair took place last weekend at Avtec!  This fair brought light to clean, alternative sources of energy such as geothermal, biomass, solar, wind, and hydro energy.  Students from K-12 made art inspired by this subject matter and did a great job!  This show was juried by the public and has amazing prizes from local businesses!  Here are some of them!

Ceramic Frames

by e10391

These frames were more difficult than I’d imagined to construct!  Students made a paper pattern first and then traced their design onto clay slabs.  The photos slide into a little compartment in back and all the frames have a way to be hung too!  Thanks students for your patience and creative designs!

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!
