Art 1

Radial Deign

Students will be creating a radial design using their first names.  Once they have their name created they will use tracing paper to replicate the design in a radial pattern.  We will then use markers to color in the design.  The goal when coloring is to no longer look at the design as a name and a background but instead to look at the positive and negative shapes all as one.

Where Student's Should Be:  Students should be coloring design.


Students will work together to create a collage with their table members. This is the only group project that I assign throughout the semester. Their goal is to create an environment / theme (cityscape, garden, outer space, underwater, snow scene etc). As a group they will 1st come up with the story they want to tell. They then will draw out a few different sketches. After they  are organized they will begin cutting out colors and images in magazines to create their scene. They will need to emphasize their 1st names and period # in the color of their table. The scene should make sense as an environment and tell a story.

If you have any extra magazines that you are willing to donate, please send them in with your child!! Thank you!

Where Students should be: Students should be finished.
