Gr. 5 - Still-Life Scratch Art, 2021

 Gr. 5 students practiced contour drawing technique, then chose a theme of objects to use for a still life composition created using multi-colored scratch paper. Choices included shells, leaves, flowers or art supplies. Students etched their objects from direct observation, adding as many details as the eye could see. Students also mounted their artwork for presentation using a color of their choice.

Gr. 7 - "Peak"-Inspired Mountain Landscapes, 2021

The Grade 7 & 8 2021 summer reading book, Peak by Roland Smith, inspired this project. Students learned about pastel techniques and landscape compositions, then followed a mountain landscape tutorial to create the scene. Then, students used oil pastels in their choices of colors and techniques to create dramatic skies.

Inktober 2021 & Tim Burton-Style Portraits by Gr. 8

 2020-21 Grade 8 students experimented with black and white drawing media. First, they created drawings based on the annual "Inktober" Challenge created by artist Jake Parker. Students could choose any prompt from this year's list (below) and express that theme any way they could imagine. Students also drew black and white portraits in the creepy style of Tim Burton!
