Students worked on their Artware By You projects this week. One of their pictures was winter themed, a jolly snowman with a surprised look! The composition is a close-up of the snowman’s face just as a gust of wind blows his hat from his head. Students were given a circle shaped template to trace around for the snowman’s head. They added details with crayon and then added swirls with white crayon to give the impression of movement and wind. The hat was the trickiest item to draw as students had to make it appear 3D. Background color was added with water color paint. Students always love seeing their crayon designs appear as they add paint. They were guided through the drawing of the hat. This idea was inspired by pictures found on the Artsonia website http://www.artsonia.com/museum/art.asp?id=7898555&exhibit=259611&gallery=y
The second groups pictures will be posted next week.
