Aurora Students created paper cut snowflakes to wrap up their Winter Art projects. Students could make digital snowflakes using two iPad apps, "Happy Snowflake" and "MyFlake". The key to a great snowflake is in the fold and how deep into the white space you cut. Use the QR code below to view beautiful Real Snowflake Crystals.
Beautiful Snowglobes were created by 8th grade art students. Students started with creating a watercolor wash on watercolor paper. They then sprinkled salt on to form the crystals in the drying process. Snow scenes were drawn in their individual globes and painted using tempera paint. Glittered acrylic paint was put on the snow to give it a shine.
Avatar, Tiger, Autumn Fairy. Sometimes, when you want to be something other than who you are, it is great to know how to use Photoshop techniques to create the new you. Great job Beth, Molli and Guy!
How can we make the historical and cultural part of art lessons engaging for our students? Creating an interactive Visual experience using Thinglink. Hover over the image to view the “hotspots”, or access on on of my Symbaloo pages.
Students in 8th grade created some great weavings! People learned to weave thousands of years ago using natural grasses, leafstalks, palm leaves, and thin strips of wood. Students could choose a traditional weaving design or a modern design of their choice. America, UK, and Mickie....all friends!
Photoshop CS6 and Wacom Pen Tablets were used to create their art. Graphic Design students love this project......always interesting to see what "stars" they choose. Two of these "stars" work at our school. One is a rockstar and one is an angel!
I live in Nebraska and love teaching art! I get the best of all worlds.... I teach High School Graphic Design, Middle School Studio Art and I am an adjunct instructor at our local college.
