In the classroom this week: Mixed media collage // Drawing from life

Here's a taste of what is happening in art class this week....

The intermediate art students are working on Mixed Media Paintings. The focus: Value, pattern, composition, & unity. Each painting must include a still life object {value} a silhouette {rhythm} and a pattern {balance} that utilizes at least half of the canvas.
Look forward to share the results + color and full lesson!!
