So, please, find a comfy seat and see what has been going on in room 1100 at THS.
Students really got into this theme. The results were so diverse, which is what I had hoped for in my TAB classroom environment. But even more so, my budding artists were revising and starting over when ideas didn't pan out. They were improving skills on their own and researching techniques such as drawing facial features without prompting from me. It was a whole new level of learning and improvement that my art room had been missing. It was (and is) wonderful!
Environment: Space and Place
In the end, I am very pleased with the amount of work these students put in. Many had not used those mediums before and they practiced and practiced to get it right for their final artworks.
ART 2: Painting and Drawing
I love this group of students. They really do take the theme and run with it. They get right to work on coming up with ideas, sketches, and research to start working right away. I hope you enjoy this work as much as I do.
INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED CERAMICS
Enlarging the Organic
The results were great. I could see the growth my students had from last year. They were able to do things they had trouble with last spring. One student was even able to problem solve during the process as he chose the cactus pod and while working, the pod slowly started to lose moisture and began to shrivel. I am proud of him and his ability to meet the problems that arose.
