Some beautiful ceramic work!

Mrs. Pazienza's ceramic class has been busy glazing away on various projects. So far they have explored various handbuilding methods including slab and coil and have had lots of practice on the wheel. I will post more pictures soon, but here are a few I took the other day. Aren't they beautiful?!

Drawing and Painting Self-Portraits

I am so proud of Drawing and Painting! Take a look at a few of the self-portraits from this year. Students used water-soluble wash pencils. They were studying Photorealism. Photorealism is based on using the camera and photographs to gather information and creating a work of art that appears photographic. The term is primarily applied to paintings from the art movement that began in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Photorealism was a reaction against Abstract Expressionism and grew out of Pop Art.

Not too sure why, but something has happened where we can't make or view comments anymore on this blog. I am trying to figure it out. Next week I will be posting FANTASTIC self-portraits created by my drawing class. I am so proud of them.
