Visual Arts teacher Jana DeSimone shares her lesson ideas and the art of her students. This blog is a place for students and adults to see the vast array of art that we are learning about and
creating in 7th
and 8th Grade Visual Arts at Aldrich Junior High School.
These are some of the amazing mixed-media relief sculptures that my students created from one of the shape creatures they developed in the first part of the lesson. A relief sculpture is flat on the back and raised up on the front. I had the students build their sculptures on top of a 16 x 20 canvas panel. This way I knew that it would be strong enough to handle all of the media that we would be using! We used a variety of supplies on this project, including scrap wood, chipboard, found objects, beads, wire, magazine collage and paints.
The incredible art featured here was created by Alex, Jarrison, Dylan and Shannon. (Left to right)
