These images are from a collaborative project with my good friend Lance Kagey that is to debut this summer in the Lincoln District of Tacoma. More info to come soon!
Here’s a quick peek at one of my students working on his perspective drawing installation.
This class was challenged to choose one word to illustrate in response to the question, How has your boundaries and borders changed this year at school?
The overall theme for this course is boundaries and borders.
Today was pretty awesome as I worked with students to put up two quick art installations around school. The first was a tape drawing installation where students recreated blind contour studies of birds from their sketchbooks. The students were very skeptical at first, but after the experience I kept seeing them showing their work to their friends. I think they were surprisingly pleased by their tape drawings.
Second, a pair of students and I utilized laser cut stencils to create an interactive installation for an upper school student event tonight. The stencils and the crushed chalk worked just as planned.
Today, I finally felt like this new community got a glimpse of what I bring to the table and how I hope to make the Arts shine brighter throughout the school. It was a good day.
This year the final project for my advanced art juniors was very simple: find a home for 12 pairs of googly-eyes on campus and don’t tell anyone what you’re doing.
Two out of three students started today and so far I’ve only found about 6 pairs (by the way, being an art teacher is awesome!) and I can’t wait to find more! Here is what I’ve found:
I’ve had a few moments to relax over spring break, but there are still plenty of projects to work on. Today I finished a 6’x12′ wheat paste mural for our church. It was a blast to make and I can’t wait to see it in action during the Easter season. Here are the process pictures and keep an eye out for the final pictures in the next few weeks.
