This week, we have collages from Ms. Wilkin's Art 1 classes. Students studied how European artists moved from a devotion to realism in the Renaissance to one of the first collage pieces in 1912 (the first photo, the rise of moving pictures, the influx of African masks). These, industrialization, and the rise of print publications and the world becoming a "faster, scarier place" influenced Picasso and Georges Braque, among others, to embrace abstraction.
Check out the great shots from 2 different Visual Imagery assignment in Ms. Max's class.
1st- Double Exposure photography is the art of combining two photographs into one. Students had a lot of artistic freedoms in how they chose to do this using photoshop as their main editing tool. Lots of variety to see!
2nd- The Multiplicity Self Portrait project tasked students with recreating reality. Students used photoshop to depict themselves in multiple places at one time. They used props, clothing and changed their appearances to fool the viewer’s eye.
One of the biggest challenges of photography is composing a good picture by controlling how the subject is seen and what emotions are felt by the viewer. This can be done through composition—the relationship of the elements in an image with each other and within the frame.
Students in Visual Imagery classes practiced and utilized 7 techniques to help make better compositions within a recent project . Rule of Thirds. Leading Lines. Framing. Formal Balance. Informal Balance. Selective Focus. Grouping.
Can you guess which technique is used by the following Artists of the week?
Swing by the Art Display Case outside of room 234 this week to see more beauties!
Painting 1 and 2 students learned about Vincent van Gogh. They learned about his painting technique and how to apply the paint in the same way. They made paintings inspired by his work. Painting 2 students created portraits while Painting 1 students created landscapes. Please enjoy their work and stop by the display to get a closer look.
Ms. Max's Visual Imagery students completed their Creative Control Project. Students learned how to use manual modes in camera to capture motion (TV mode) and depth of field (AV mode). Since everything in photography is about controlling light, they had to master aperture and shutter speed to create these nifty effects!
At the end of this project students voted on their peers' work to determine TOP Photographer!
Small doors represent challenges in getting started out in life but the stairs and elevations represent numerous but mysterious future opportunities.
Hello Eagles! This week, Art 1 students completed their maze drawings, demonstrating the ability to create the illusion of form on a 2D surface using linear perspective and value. Each maze represents how the students see their future opportunities and challenges. Noah Ofalsa (11th grade) and Ashlynn Olive (9th grade) are our artists for this week. Come see the exhibit in the gallery upstairs featuring drawings from: Noah Gregory, Alvin Kendricks, Takara Afelumo, Elizabeth Hernandez, Chelsea Flores, Miranda Alondra, Gianna Sevilla, Steven Bridewell, Alissa Santiago, Mariah Swan, Muhammad Zahid, Cecilia Quinones, and Hades Nuckles Harris.
The VAPA/CTE artists of the week come from the Set Design classes with their first project, the Back To School wall. It’s a 16 foot long wall outside the student entrance. They designed the layout around a Back To The Future theme. They built the set walls, large scale props, and cutouts. They’re also learning to use spray paint with technicality and creativity. These students are really grasping the concept, so expect many more colorful murals and displays this year. This wall will be up all week. Go check it out. Thanks!
Ever wonder what it would be like to be in multiple places at one time?
What would you be doing?
For this project students in Ms. Max's class were tasked with re-creating reality. Students used photopea.com to depict themselves in a frame more than once! They used props, clothing and changed their appearances to fool the viewer’s eye.
Visual Imagery - Ms. Max
Making art personal and relevant to students is always a challenge. This week's artist highlights are from my Visual Imagery (Photo 1) classes and it is one of my favorite photography projects!!
Students were forced to look at the world around them with a new perspective, finding “letters” within everyday objects. We then “played” with B and W and Color to create multiple versions of their name! Can’t get more personalized than that!
Students had fun with this and I think the results are pretty darn good! Enjoy! And if you know any of these artists feel free to compliment them on their good work!

Throughout time people have turned to art as a way to express themselves about their society and world view. This genre of art is called social commentary and it is a persuasive genre that can help spread ideas, information, and advocate for change.
Typically, I keep this pretty open ended. There are a lot of perspectives that can be explored through photography! That being said, 2020 left one big elephant in our lives and through photography I wanted to give students an outlet to process and explore it!
YES, students created photography about COVID!
Some of their photos might make you laugh, or cry, or maybe even make you cheer! :)
