We are glad you stopped in once again to see what we have been up to for the last month. Our weeks have been full of creativity, from printmaking to papermache. Please enjoy the photographs!
The middle school students were given a special sweet treat, with a challenge...... The assignment: Paint the Life Cycle of a Cupcake. From the first bite, to the crumbly wrapper.
In the kindergarten class we have been working on a series involving houses. We are studying how to create the illusion of night and day in our paintings... Some of the questions we have been discussing are, "What colors make morning time?", and "How does the night-light effect the color of the house?". We have also started making house sculptures!
The middle school class has been learning about pinhole cameras. These photographs were taken with student-made cameras constructed with oatmeal containers. They were then developed in a darkroom that we set up at the studio. The process was difficult, but the students hung in there and learned the mantra, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
Our collaboration class with The Burke County Library was a wooly, soapy success, with each student taking home a piece of handmade felt! Special thanks to OSuzannah's Yarn on Union for suppling the goods.
