6th Grade “Selfies” in-progress

Students are in the middle of creating self-portraits using value and utilizing a grid to maintain proportion. Their focus is on meticulously drawing only what they see, finding the underlying structure, and being willing to continually re-work features in their drawings. Here are a few pics of drawings in progress:

Block Prints

5th Grade artists have been diligently drawing, carving, and pulling an edition of linoleum block prints.  It’s been a busy, challenging, and fun project!  Next, students will learn the Japanese stab-binding technique, and will soon be heading home with a hand-sewn book of prints – a unique design from each 5th grade student!IMG_2302 IMG_2358 IMG_2359 IMG_2360 IMG_2361 IMG_2362 IMG_2364 IMG_2367 IMG_2373 IMG_2375 IMG_2376 IMG_2377 IMG_2383
