Every time I give my students a project I make sure it's something I also enjoy doing. We've been working on many fun projects with different materials and concepts. It's been quite a journey. Here are some of my current art samples I have been making with the students.
Gridded portrait of Elvis using pointillism.
Painting form samples. I goofed up on the right ones and made the ground darker. It should have been flipped. My bad.
Color Wheels... oh teaching color theory. I've had students create so many different kinds of colors wheels over the years. Some are more presentable than others, but I find that the standard bottom left color wheel works well enough. Fancy is not always needed.
I love making stamps when we do printmaking. I've made three samples so far. I could make one myself every day, but then I'd use all the class supply. I already don't think I have enough for next semester.
My 2D art students really wanted to spray paint, so I let them. We used the back of drawing boards. I created this multi-layered tape thing with a two-layered Elvis. I could have done more, but I may be too impatient for the drying of spray paint. I know the students really enjoyed it.
In Cultural Art I had the students create African Tinga Tinga paintings using Minnesota animals and influences. My example includes the state bird (loon) and state fish (walleye).
