Art II Mobiles

Our Art II students had the assignment of creating a mobile however they wanted – but they must create a framework from cardboard first.  Some opted to use a type of papier mache, some opted for an all-cardboard construction, some got creative with paper and recycled materials.  I love how different each one turned out.



A few more days into German Expressionism have the paintings on the walls looking AWESOME.  Full of emotion!  Soon we’ll identify individual paintings’ areas of emphasis, that being the principle of art we’re covering right now.


Before Spring Break, each art class period learned about four different artists and then chose an artist of whom to create a GIANT portrait.  First period chose Pablo Picasso, second was Andy Warhol, and sixth picked Frida Kahlo.  (Poor Salvador Dali felt no love this semester.)  In the class periods, each student was given 4-6 ‘squares’ of the portrait to recreate with chalk and charcoal.  The result was a portrait taller than seven feet that exhibited the artistic styles of the whole class while simultaneously representing a singular artist.  I think Picasso would have been proud, don’t you?

Frida Kahlo, represented by the artists in sixth period and also the winner of the teacher’s vote for Best Portrait.

Congratulations Art I and II students!
