We are able to express joy and pain about life experiences and events through artwork. For example, Autumn de Forest, 13 years old, “created a painting commemorating the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings” which she showcased at the Park West Gallery VIP Event at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston in 2005. She took the dark and painful event of the Boston Bombing and created a piece to remember those lost. She started painting when she was five years old and since has created beautiful masterpieces inspired by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

For our final Spring Studio Art Adventures Online, we returned to artist, Jonathan Lev’s studio!
Sharing his latest LIFE-SIZE charcoal drawings, he gave us more art technique secrets when drawing a 3D object onto a 2D surface. We worked through many art challenges to understand how to capture perspective, locate our light source and show depth using our value scale. WATCH HERE on our youtube channel!
Thank you again, Jonathan! Check out more of his inspiring work HERE!
We put on our filmmaker thinking caps and became graphic designers to create our own version of a 3D Movie Poster. Frozen 2 was our inspiration this week!
We learned NEW characters… Nature’s elements!(Earth (GIANTS) Fire (BRUNI) Water (NOKK) Wind (GALE.) Click to learn more about this. Art Themes: Opaque vs. Transparent/Translucent; Warm vs Cool colors, plus how movies build Characters- and represent them in advertising.
You can create other collage posters of your favorite movies! All you need is paper, glue, and cut up images of characters & elements in your movie. Add any 2D or 3D thing that reminds you of the movie.
