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!

Week 5... Busy Hive!

Because this week was shortened due to Labor Day, a Flood Day, and a Flood Delay, our timelines are being pushed and edited a bit. We still have a lot of content to cover, so students are busy bees for the next few weeks!

Art 1: Color Theory and Painting

Our final Element to explore is Color!
Students learned new color vocabulary this week, including color schemes, mixing and theory vocabulary. Students also learned the practice of color mixing by creating their own color wheels including primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, as well as 2 tints and 2 shades of each hue.
Advanced Art: Alterations and Reworks of Masterpieces
Students are finishing their Altered Contour drawings from last week, as well as beginning their Masterpiece re-works. Students are choosing a master work of art to redo in some way. Different materials, different color schemes, different interpretations of the same theme or object; students are taking an existing piece and making it new, fresh, and their own!
