MS Art Elective Update – November 2015

Students in the Middle School Art Elective class recently finished creating recycled paper bowls from IMG_5147discarded magazines. Currently, they are currently making drawings featuring a blind contour drawing of the hand, with an Op Art background.

A blind contour drawing is one in which the artist looks carefully at the object they are drawing, but without ever looking at their paper. Some students find the blind contour drawing to be very frustrating, because the results can look a little strange; however, the process forces the artist to very carefully observe while drawing.

On a day that I was recently out, students used the Chromebooks to do research on Op Art, and to choose a method that they would like to use for their artwork. When I got back the next day, many of them already had a fantastic start.
