Welcome to the online art studio, aka the wired atelier*!

This blog is designed for students and families in Allison Fuller-Mulloy's SMHS Art Classes. It is a site for posting our daily work and homework (IWs) each week, ideas and images to explore further, reminders and due dates. I hope this blog will help students by reinforcing the week's major ideas and activities, giving make-up work for absentees, and providing families a look into the atelier every day!

Georgia O'Keeffe studies... Week 7

Students spent Monday gathering information about Georgia O'Keeffe and her artwork. Noting O'Keeffe's monumental style, focusing on organic objects and bright, bold colors, students created sketches reproducing the artist's bold compositional style and use of negative space.

After gathering natural objects from our local setting, students created their own monumental drawings in O'Keeffe's style and used chalk pastel to add bright, smoothly blended colors.
