Theme: Color Quest For Ms. Alum’s class we took a lot of influence from what we did exploring cultures in Mr. Kemker’s class but applied it a little differently in a sense that it was more about how these tools and materials work. In learning how to use these variety of mediums such as clay, paint brushes, carving tools and of course our marvelous hands. We focus less on the outcome of the piece itself but more so the steps it takes to get there. And boy, did we get there as you can see! These magnificent artworks very much mimic the pallets of the paint that they came from! We as well did pottery pieces and went more into manipulation of clay and then sculpting. By learning about how tools work you’re able to get a better understanding on how to manipulate them which makes it easier to add your own creative expressions to your own individual pieces! Unique and genuine just like you!

Theme: Color Expression in Culture

Mr. Kemker’s class focuses on cultural studies and we wanted to integrate that into these artworks. So many mediums are used throughout various cultures so we went for a multimedia type of course where they are doing 2D pieces and 3D pieces spanning from paintings to pottery. For pottery we explored air dry clay and cultural carvings and icons using clay tools. We use vibrant colors of the student’s choice to allow highlights of their cultural influence shine! Among other projects we did portraits of our self or a character of our inner self. We used lessons in facial proportions and then allowed room for exaggeration. It was a treat to see the influence of fashion, food and music get integrated into these wonderful pieces you see before you today.
