There were several nice homework drawings this week. I will try and photograph more of them when you come back next Tuesday. I really enjoy seeing you put your best efforts into your homework assignments. The best way to get more accomplished at drawing is to practice a lot and have fun with it.
Welcome back to art class for quarter 3. To honor the Clemson team that won the National Championship in Football and the upcoming Holy Trinity Basketball teams, for this first week of the new quarter I would like you to choose an image of a Tiger to draw in your sketchbook. Choose one that challenges you and do your best!
There is a homework holiday over the Christmas break. Hopefully you stopped by the art room to pick up your glazed tea bowls. I will bisque fire the animal sculptures over the break once they are all bone dry, so that they are ready for glazing when we get back in January.
If you want to find any of your work that is hanging in the hallways to take home before you leave tomorrow for your break, you may take them down and then please just put the push pins back in the bulletin boards so that I can reuse them. If you want to wait until after the break I will deliver those to your classrooms before the 3rd qtr. starts.
Have a wonderful Christmas and Holiday with your family and friends and don’t forget the reason for the season, the birth of our savior Jesus.
I had many different requests for homework assignments this week, so I’m making this week a student’s choice. Pick something that you like to draw in your sketchbook. Impress me and perhaps we can have more free days.
To prepare for the next clay project, this week I would like you to research ceramic animal sculptures and choose one that inspires you to draw in your sketchbook. I’m looking for your drawing to show form and dimensions as well as details that you can incorporate into your next project. Have fun and pick one that you really want to try.
