These photos are from my High School Introduction to Photography course. Students utilized the selective color process to emphasize a focal point in specific compositions, and in other compositions they combined two landscape photos using layer masks.
These photos above are from the reflection project. Students researched different artists who utilize the theme of reflection, and were inspired by their research to make their own reflection photos. They chose two photos to make into a diptych and analyzed how the two images work aesthetically when seen side by side.
The pictures above are from the mixed media collage project based on the theme Identity. Students reflected on what the word "Identity" means to them, and experimented with mixed media collage techniques. They combined all of their knowledge from reflection, and experimentation into a final composition.
Middle School Artwork
The images above are from trimester 1. The eighth grade city scene drawings are based on one point perspective techniques. The sixth grade landscape paintings project focused on showing depth with a foreground, middle ground, and background, and using painting techniques in a variety of ways. Below is a sample of the abstract foil relief project by grade 6.
The pictures below are wheel thrown clay pots with "feet". This project is based on a pun since the base of a piece of pottery is called the foot. Grade 6 Students enjoyed creating themed feet for their pottery.
