by e10391

colorwheel

Seward Middle School students learned how to mix all 12 colors of the color wheel using just the primary colors: red, yellow, blue!  Then they were given the assignment to come up with a composition which included all 12 colors!  Here is what they came up with, great job!

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!

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:
