The students in all of the classes in art room 171 continue to create great work and learn new skills in the visual arts. At the end of each quarter the advanced Studio Arts students complete two full classes of group critique. The purpose of the group critique is to share work with each other and to receive constructive feedback. Feedback can include comments to improve technique, composition or style choices. Feedback can also note progress and success for individual student work. Students can also share what they have learned with each other. The students in this class are also required to write reflections of recently completed work and to set new self-directed goals for future work. The students in this class are able to reflect, write, speak and assist one another very thoughtfully. I am so proud of the work they create and how they are able to support each other in the study of visual art.
Below are a few of the many successful projects from the quarter 3 critique created by Eva Alessandroni, Maria Athanasopoulos, Amelia Allison and Anya Gellerman.
Students in the Language and Methods of Art class created beautiful landscape paintings and are now learning about perspective drawing. They learned new ways to apply the paint to create different textures and improved skills in mixing new colors. Below are landscapes by Nelson Marquez and Isaac Mugomba.
The 3D students are almost finished creating artists books about a personal interest theme. They learning simple bookbinding skills and had to use art and design skills to create the design of all the pages in their books. The 2D students worked hard to learn perspective drawing and had to create an imaginary room drawing using perspective and freehand drawing skills. Look for photos of some of the completed results in a future blog post.
