This Fall I am working with the Waupaca Arts Hub and offering to instruct a semester long Art Class. We are going to working on a series of projects to introduce and explore art concepts to these budding artists. This week at the we focused on a "new way of looking" with the introduction of abstract landscapes. With this project we worked on timed sketches, word prompts and symbolically representing their ideas in drawing form. Next week we look forward to stretching what they learned by adding color to their pieces we started this week.
In addition, each student was issued their very own Art Sketchbook to keep and maintain this entire semester. They will be jotting down lessons and terms learned during class time and are encouraged add to it the rest of the week. This allows them to generate ideas and share with their peers.
