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!

Romare Bearden Collages... Week 5

Students learned about Harlem Renaissance artist Romare Bearden this week. Noted for his inventive use of paper in collages, his focus on the themes of everyday life of African Americans, and his involvement in the art world, Bearden is an influential figure in art history.

Inspired by Bearden's work, students used his style and techniques of paper collage to create their own images of everyday life.
