"This week we welcome the first official day of fall on September 22nd. Our 8th grade class at Saint Joseph School gladly welcomed fall by doing colored pencil pumpkin cameos. This project was executed by using colored pencils on black construction paper then a pumpkin "cameo" was glued on top of the drawing to showcase the students fall scene."
Last week and this week the school in Art Class has been working on a project called "Getting to Know You". These projects have several components working together to create one piece. All of which is mostly a mixed media art piece that consists of watercolor, marker and tracing of their own hand, creating their name in a bubble font that they then cut out and glue to a piece of paper they have divided into sections. Each section has one positive saying or fun fact about the student on it that makes each individual unique, such as "I am good at math" or "My favorite color is Orange". This project is to help students get more acquainted with me as their new art teacher and to their friends in class and at St. Joseph School.
