Class of 2022 Hike Up Mt. Monadnock
2D High School Art
2D High School Artists have been investigating some basic practices of compositional creation with the guidance of their own curiosity. They have been encouraged to explore color mixing, texture, and words integrated into their experimental compositions. This is all leading up to an exciting project to have the students paint storm drain murals downtown Wilton! Thanks to the awesome outreach from Donna Crane of the Wilton Community Center, we will be linking up with Michele Decoteau who is the Land Use Administrator and Stormwater Manager of Wilton, NH. Michele will visit WLC within the next few weeks to further discuss the guidelines of this mural project, as well as the importance of storm drain awareness with local and global water protection. In the meantime, we have commenced our deep dive into the visual studies of how various artists represent water with discerning investigations into the use of watercolor and acrylic painting techniques.
3D High School Art
3D High School Artists are learning about the material culture of cardboard. Together they are experimenting with the versatility of this well-loved artist resource through sculpting visual 3D metaphors as well as surface investigations with spray paint in creating some inspiring visuals and quotes. They have been practicing some art criticism by viewing works of art by famous artists, and now they are deducing their own interpretive meaning through the critique practice of each other’s work.
Computer Arts students have been studying the fundamentals of animation by closely observing various characteristics of motion in our everyday lives. We are analyzing and sketching out paths of motion, and then imitating them by recreating the movement with handmade visual representations. The students have already created their own green screen and tried out a bit of basic editing on the Adobe After Effects platform. Since then, we have begun creating our own investigations into frame by frame animations with hand drawing images on sticky note books. This practice is in preparation for their handmade flip-book challenge! Flipbooks are a rudimentary practice that will enable these young animators to better understand the basics of animation and how it translates into digital animation parameters for more refined motion techniques.
8th Grade Art
8th Graders in Art this trimester occupy 3 full classes! We are investigating 3 different topics. One class is looking at how to represent meaning more abstractly in sculptural formats, and working in groups to take their time to extract their own subjective interpretations from the sculptures. Another group are also working in sculptural ways, but with the challenge of reinventing ‘misfit’ ceramics that have been neglected in their unfinished state. Their dedication to observation, envisioning and reflection has brought them to creative solutions and wild ideas! Lastly the 3rd 8th grade class is talking about color, and how the layering of color in various materials yields interesting effects. From juxtaposing crayons in nature, to layering various abstract color shapes and lines, they are on their way to creating their own colors in recycled jars to use in their first big color theory project.
7th Grade Art
7th Graders have been investigating a bit of color theory review as well and applying it to their studies of...eyes! We have been talking about the different parts of the eye that evoke our human expression, and how to simplify our eye renderings in order to capture creative expression with fewer lines. This practice is in preparation for a request from the middle school science department at WLC to paint eyes on some old goggles for opaque blindfolds for their scientific inquiry assignments. Additionally we are exploring composition, and how artists alter composition by cropping in on a piece of art. These eye sketch compositions will be framed with colors that we mixed based on their own creative decision making.
Family and Consumer Science
In “For the Love of Leftovers Class” we have been making vinyl record bowls. We are still in the beginning stages, but we are making progress. Many thanks to Ms. Hall for sharing her spray paints with us and her expertise. We even practiced on a picnic table and worked collaboratively. In this class we also made a big meal and ate family style. In today’s busy world, many families don’t sit together and eat at the table. We started preparing it during advisory and continued through our class period.
In Creative Cooking our favorite item so far is spaghetti bread. Each one came out awesome! Vincent LoVerme and Alex Carver shared their’s with the guidance department. Mrs. Kovaliv said they should receive an A+. The students are making progress with time management. Our class goes by really fast. We have made a lot of quick breads and will be making treats for the Homecoming Dance.
