Featured Artist Logan Kessinger
After mastering each handbuilding method through formative
work, Logan succeeded in developing his own unique style.
Three groups of Painting and Color Theory students were commissioned by a group of U.S. History students to create pro-activist paintings for Rocket halls. The history students listed several social problems for the painters. The painters chose a social theme. The history students then provided the criteria for each painting. Painting students submitted 2-4 drafts to the commissioning students before receiving the go ahead to paint! The commissioning group and painters are hopeful that SCHS students will appreciate the artwork and empathize with the social issues. The artwork is meant to inspire students to make positive changes.
Students broke from functional hand building methods to experiment with sculpting.
8th Grade students chose subject, style, purpose and a color scheme to paint in their light bulbs!
Painting students were required to use proportion and value to create the illusion of reality.
Soft Slab Method
Students created cylindrical ceramic vessels. Beyond applying the soft slab method students were required to make the piece original with their own design ideas.
8th Grade Depth of Field Drawings
Students applied all seven Art Elements to create the illusion of distance and depth in a realistic drawing.
