8th grade artists
Students in 7th and 8th grade created Valentines cards for the men and woman that live at the Elmcroft Assisted Living Facility, in Marietta.
Students created realistic portraits using any real person as their subject matter. Some students chose their favorite musician, author, athlete, artist, or someone in their family to be the focus of their work. Students then selected the media they would apply to their work to give it the effect they were working trying to convey.
Bring in a photograph of....
You, a family member, a famous athlete, author, musician, or actor etc.
We will be creating portraits next week.
Make sure you have a sketchbook with your photograph.
You may also have more than one person in the photograph you are working from.
Students are working on drawing self-portraits in proportion.
Students are drawing the entire anatomy of themselves from head to toe.
The background must include at least 5 objects.
Students need to show detail and use of the art elements and principles of design.
Beginning visual arts students will need to draw a head and torso in proportion.
Students are creating comic strips with at least 3 storyboards and a title box.
Students have the option to create their own character(s) or select one that was provided by a Pickett's Mill artist. If students selected a character from the elementary artist, they will collaborate in a vertical team show at Allatoona High School on Thursday November 29th at 7 p.m. Allatoona High School artists will also be participating in this collaborative event.
Students are using their photograph to create a 2D artwork inspired by the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead. Students are including symbols that represent that day as well as placing paint and designs on their face to symbolize sugar skulls. Students learned about artist Jose Posada and his skeleton prints as well as many facts about Día de los Muertos.
