The Wednesday afternoon art class created some wonderful rabbit images this spring.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The first step was to create the background as the girls added stripes of various tints to their images.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

While waiting for the background to dry, students drew their rabbits with pencil using basic shapes  and then outlined with a marker.

It was a lot of fun creating the rabbit and exaggerating many different features on the drawing.

The next step was to cut out the rabbit.

The final step was to put together the image and the background by gluing them.

Everyone had fun and enjoyed their creation!

Students explored the ideas of figures and shapes and how Picasso placed facial features in non-traditional places to show the human form in new ways.

Students began by cutting out the outline of a figure.

Students had to imagine looking at the side view of themselves as they cut out the figure.

This required a lot of concentration as students thought through all of the shapes needed for their portrait.

Students used a wide variety of colors, shapes and papers to create their Picasso portrait.

The shape of flowers


The home-school art class explored creating flowers beginning with the circle shape.

Starting with a circle the students begin to transform the shape into a flower with scissors, removing various shapes to imitate a flower design.

Next the students add various layers of shapes to their flower to create a layered flower design.

With many colors, shapes and sizes to employ into their image students have many choices to make in creating their flower design.

It’s really fun to watch the creative process bloom in these kids as they immerse themselves in making art.

As the flower project continues to grow, so does the students’ confidence in their artistic achievements.

Every child is an artist.  The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.  -Pablo Picasso
