AP Art explores texture

This is always one of the favorite assignments in AP Art.  Students use modeling paste and found objects to build texture, then they use layers of glaze and acrylic to add color.

Low Relief with Foil

This year my Pre IB Art 2 class tried a low relief project using aluminum foil.  Many people have seen this done but I wanted to see if my high school students could use this to produce artwork focused on good composition and good design.

Students used paper, cardboard, string, and glue to create their designs.  They then covered these in aluminum foil and sprayed it with a coat of black spray paint.  Students then used steel wool to carefully remove the spray paint in certain areas to emphasize their designs.
