Self Portraits in Gray Scale

Students in Mrs. Self's Art One class are working on self portraits in grayscale.  The backgrounds are the choice of the artist and can be figurative or more true-to-life based on the photograph they are working from.  Students are concentrating on improving their technical skill and matching corresponding values.  I love watching them progress!  See more under the Art tab!

The most wonderful time of the year!

With a lot going on in the art room and in the Perry Art Department in general, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the blog with everything else that is going on!  Next week is our last week of school for 2012 and then we are on to Christmas Break!  The picture above is of our mural mosaic project in progress.  We are still cutting tiles out of clay and the ones that have been fired are now being painted.  We can't wait to see how it all comes together next spring!  Stay tuned...

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

It has been in the low sixties this week in Ohio but typically we have some fierce weather this time of year!  In order to keep with the spirit of the season, we created these snowmen with the phrase, "Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but Edison is so delightful!"
