2012- 2013 Arts & Technology Showcase Blue Ribbon Winners (Winter Trimester)
What Makes Me Scream: Grade 6 students appropriated Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” in order to express their deepest fears. Painting in the Style of Klimt: Grade 6 students created mixed media paintings in the style of Klimt in order to broaden their knowledge about stylization, composition, and formal analysis.
What makes a good photo? Grade 7 students used digital cameras to explore this question and developed skills in lighting, color, focus, subject and composition. The photographer tries to control all of these elements to create a high-quality photo. Ultimately, the measure of a photo is the question “Does it communicate effectively?”
“Xerox” Self-Portrait: How do we express both clear emotion and a sense of distance and mystery within the same drawing? High school students copied their faces and hands while making expressions for a specific mood. Using these photos as a reference point, they created large charcoal drawings.
Texture Self-Portrait: Students were given a list of “texture” adjectives such as “jagged,” “soft,” or “shaggy.” They chose one texture to use to depicted themselves in a self-portrait. Self-Portrait: High school students created their first self-portrait paintings using acrylic.
Intro to Digital Media: Students produced four assignments: capturing mood, shapes and textures, photomontage and self-portrait.
