This year we will not only explore new mediums, we will make them! Art and Science meet!! Mrs. Cecil and Mrs. L will host a combined exploration into making our own inks out of nontoxic everyday items found in nature. What would we do with watercolor ink if we didn’t have paper? Let’s learn to make it!!! Each year I begin with understanding light. This is essential to bringing our art to the illusion of 3-dimentionality. We will hone our drawing skills and cooperate on a school wide multimedia project involving abstract art and process.
