Jayden’s Blog-6th Grade Perspective Paintings

The 6th graders have just learned how to show more depth in their artwork by using a technique called 1Point Perspective. They went to the computer lab and made some nice paintings using Paint Shop Pro. The straight line tool on the computer makes it easier. Some even put photos of themselves in their picture. Check them out.

Jayden’s Blog-The Field Trip

 

Last week, all art students in 6th grade went to the Amon Carter Art Museum. We saw different varieties of artwork. I’m sure everyone had an awesome time! This question is for the 6th graders. What was your favorite piece of artwork at the Amon Carter Art Museum and why?? Who created it? ( You can go to www.cartermuseum.org and click on “works of art” if you don’t remember the title or artist’s name.) My favorite was “Attention Company” by William Harnett!  The painting was so detailed. I think that the artist did great on the expression of the little boy. The crinkles in the newspaper hat, and the creases in the coat are so detailed!
