Ode to Taylor Swift

After a ton of practice drawing portraits the art fundamental and drawing/painting  students were challenged to draw a final portrait of anyone they would like. This could be a self portrait, family or friend portrait, or celebrity portrait. I learned just how much high school students love taylor swift during this time. Several male and female students slaved over shading every ringlet curl and long eyelash trying to get her likeness just right. You can see what a range of skill levels the class has as well. See if you can identify the students other favorite celebs in the drawings below too:

Slab Boxes

Day off and time for some updates to the blog! Here are some slab boxes made by my high school ceramic students. The awesome hand-out of making slab boxes is from .

This project was practice with slabs leading up to the students creating even larger more irregular form slab boxes that related to a theme of their choice. Once they mastered the small 4x4x4 slab box they had the skills needed to make their theme box. Themes included a fish shaped tackle box or a guitar shape box to hold concert tickets.
