<![CDATA[Collaborative Charcoal Drawing]]>Tue, 17 Nov 2015 01:51:38 GMThttp://serafinisartroom.weebly.com/8th-grade/collaborative-charcoal-drawingOn the last few days together before students moved on to our next exploratory classes, we decided to work collaboratively. Students freely drew with charcoal and chalk on a very large paper. We just drew and talked about what was happening during the entire process, cool lines, interesting light and shades, and messy hands...it was so much FUN!

8th Grade is prepping to begin their Surrealist Sculptures. After looking at Surreal works of art, the class did this warm-up activity: students were given 2 post it notes. One with a mood, and one with a person or thing. Kids had to combine the two ideas and draw or collage a surreal piece of art. Here are a few exames from today!
