Drawing and Painting I/II
Students explored mark-making with a variety of 2-D media and building skill with the elements of art and principles of design. We began with creative exercises in our art journals and personal narratives with collaged portfolios, for our artwork. We explored line with expressive Egyptian Portraits, defined aesthetics with Art is…., created colorful “Calaveras” and animal etchings as we learned about art history and contemporary cultures. We made social statements as artists on the theme of home and utopia with mixed media and watercolor/ink silhouettes. The diversity of “Fictional Characters with our annual CPK transformation project demonstrates the creativity and ingenuity of RHP/REN student artists.
