CCA ‘s repeat attendance enabled us to search for brand new art to teach each year. In January 2011, we explored exciting ways that regular old paper can be transformed into fantastic art. We studied a variety of artists and their techniques including: Mia Pearlman, Andrea Dezsö and Betrice Coron. Here you see the first stage of our cut paper mobiles project inspired by Mia Pearlman. Students each made at least two drawings with one featuring curvy shapes and one with angle shapes. The next step was to cut out some of the shapes created. Choosing which shapes to cut out, which to leave and just how much negative space to keep around the shapes were important decisions each student had to make about their artwork.The next phase included assembling the pieces into a paper mobile. Here are some end results!
Welcome to Fall 2018! On our agenda these 1st 2 weeks were creative challenges & an artistically-inclined science experiment: Liquid Oceans, Summer Reflection Assemblage boxes as well as Impasto Painting! We explored All NEW Art tools, NEW Media & NEW techniques with Modern, Contemporary & Multicultural art.
