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.
It was alot of fun to draw these final draft portraits of classmates on newspaper backgrounds. Sometimes the newspaper had different sized letters or areas of crossword puzzles. See if you can find some parts of these drawings that were made more interesting depending on the placement of the image on the newspaper background. From top to bottom, these pairs of portraits were created by Nathan F., Emily H., Isabella, and Sophia.
I also think that it is cool to notice the different ways that each artist has used the watercolor pencils . For example, Nathan's work has a soft, shaded look while Sophia's colors are bold and vibrant! Any way you look at it, these are some fabulous portraits!
