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!

Illusions with lines

by e10391

To end the year, we did a variety of small projects involving optical illusions using lines and rulers!  We started with the 3-D hand or sphere illusion, then did a one point perspective room, and ended with 3-D one point perspective letters!  Here are just a few of them!

Reductive Block Prints

by e10391

The first semester is wrapping up here at Seward High and we are ready for our holiday break! SHS Art students completed block prints and did a great job! The artistry was in identifying and simplifying the image into 3 different values (light medium dark) and also showing different textures! Then they had to carve this image into linoleum and print in layers to get the different colors/values. Here are some great ones for you to check out!

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!

Advanced Art

by e10391

Congratulations to Gretchen Lindquist for creating the winning mural design!  Her Jellyfish design will be located on the bathrooms by the skate park.  The Mural Society ordered us six 4’x8′ aluminum panels (thanks Jennifer Headtke!), which we cut down to 4’x6′ (thanks Ronn Hemstock!) to facilitate the 6’x 24′ design.  We then sanded, washed and primed all of the panels.  Gretchen is currently drawing/projecting the design onto the panels.  Once she’s done, her classmates will help her begin to paint!

 

Here are some more random projects from Advanced Art Students at Seward High:

Nikki Farquharson Style Drawings

by e10391

After looking at the artwork by illustrator Nikki Farquharson, Seward High Art Students made their own patterned artwork using markers.  They traced or collaged in the main figure, then developed intricate patterns for the background.  I think they turned out really nice!
