Students in Art Foundations 1 are learning all about color--how to use primary colors to mix secondary and intermediate colors, as well as mixing tints, tones and shades. They are using analogous colors to create paintings that look as though they've been shattered.
One of the challenges of drawing or painting on a flat surface is showing space, or the illusion of distance. Artists use size, details, placement, value, and color to show that objects recede or come forward. What better way to practice this than by going outside to draw! We enjoyed beautiful weather as we drew the landscape around the school.
In Art Foundations 1, students explored different qualities and characteristics of line--one of the Elements of Art. In class, we studied the work of contemporary artist Tony Orrico, who uses his body to create repeated lines. After watching a performance of Tony's work, students went outside to try it for themselves!
