Unsung Heroes



 The ArtEffect Project, with a $7,500 grand prize, gives students grades 6-12 an opportunity to generate unique, creative interpretations both literal and abstract that honor the legacies of Unsung Heroes in an array of artistic mediums. LMC’s arts initiative aims to teach students the power they have to create positive change in the world through visual storytelling. Students may choose between celebrating an already discovered Unsung Hero or discovering a new Unsung Hero to share with the world. Last year one of our very own was a finalist in this competition! If you are interested in participating please see me or go here for more information.

Upside Down

In class this week we are talking about the difference between left and right brain functions. As we explore our drawing unit we are finding it easier to draw something detailed when it is upside down. This forces us to look at the lines and shapes (positive and negative) that make up the design instead of trying to draw something specific (ie: bamboo, woman, hut).  If you want to practice at home I have included the image here. Enjoy!

Art Journal Every Day





If you are taking any of the art classes offered this semester you will be using a sketchbook almost every day. Sometimes these are called: art journals, visual-verbal journals, altered books and several other monikers. Here is a great website that will provide you with lots of inspiration in the coming months!
