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.
At this stage in the lesson we can see that Noelle is adding color to each interior by using colored pencils in contrastingcolors. Contrasting colors are like color opposites. For example, if she had a blue ocean then an orange fish would show up well in the picture. Some of the magazine pictures were difficult to see, but the addition of contrasting background colors really helped make these pictures show up better.
