|Matthew C. is hard at work adding layers of oil pastels to his sculpture.|
Once again we talked about contrasting colors, warm and cool colors and complimentary colors. I reminded everyone that all of the little details and multiple layers of parts would become nearly impossible to see unless they made smart choices with the oil pastlels. I am happy to report that they did an excellent job with selecting and applying their colors!
The pastels worked well on top of the acrylic paint and it was fun to mix and blend colors together. I asked the students to outline their smaller parts with a contrasting color to help emphasize each detail. It was so cool to see each sculpture come to life as the colors worked their magic to transform the painted wood into vibrant cityscapes!
|Max had to work in the small, difficult to reach areas of the skatepark he designed!|
|David M. created a skyscraper constructed from plastic scraps that he cut and arranged to create a sense of balance!|
|Maggie M. used colors that really popped against the black basecoat!|
