Seward High School Watercolor Paintings

by e10391

Seward High students learned 12 different watercolor techniques, including using salt, rubbing alcohol, tissue paper, etc.  Then they hand drew a person or animal and used this drawing to create a water color painting, utilizing at least 5 of these techniques as they chose.  They did an amazing job!  See if you can figure out what technique they used where!

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!

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!

First Quarter Ceramics

by e10391

Seward High Ceramics Class has been up to a lot this quarter!  They began by making paper mache circus animals to decorate the Seward Music and Arts Festival.  This involved drawing out patterns, projecting them onto large sheets of plywood, cutting the parts out with jigsaws and routers, constructing the wooden forms with screws and nails, adding the muscle and flesh with newspaper and chicken wire, paper mache-ing the outside, and painting!  Here are some process shots!

After all that work, they finally began with clay, and the first assignment was to create a sculptural container with a removable lid:

NOSB Art Show Results

by e10391

Much thanks to Judy McDonald for the huge task of putting on the NOSB art show every year!  She arranges the show with mailed in and hand delivered pieces from high schoolers all over the state, carefully unwrapping large, fragile, bubble wrapped masses,  hanging art from fishing nets, matching pieces to labels, and finding local artists to juror the show.  The opening was tonight at the Rea Building and will be up through the weekend.  I wanted to highlight Seward participants who received awards, although teens from all over the state made and were awarded for beautiful and interesting Ocean themed art.
Seward High received two First Place Prizes!

Leatherwork

by e10391

I was inspired to do some deep cleaning in my supply closet and stumbled upon stashes of leather and leatherworking tools from the late 1990s I’d guess.  This deduction is due to finding Seward’s own Kris Peck’s name stamped into one of the scraps.   I decided to put this fine resource to use although I had literally no experience with leather tooling.  A few Youtube tutorials and a visit to Tandy Leather in Anchorage later, we were in business.  Students began with keychains to get the basic idea, and then moved onto a bigger project: wallets, holsters, belts, purses, dog colars, moccasins…  We tooled the leather, stamped it, stained it, painted it, riveted it, sewed it, and so on.  Here are some of their projects!

Reductive Linoleum Prints

by e10391

As a class, we went on a little field trip and did a photo scavenger hunt to try to capture interesting pictures.  Students then picked their favorite to turn into a linoleum print.  By hand, they colored on top of the grey tone photo, to simplify it into only 3 shades, black, white and grey.  They traced these shapes onto linoleum and cut them in layers, printing in whichever colors they wished.  Here they are:
