Electives: Original Art with Mr. Chris


This year I (Mr. Chris) got to do the original arts project with the Francine Delany Middle School students. We discussed the elements of art: color, shape, line, form, texture, space, and value. We looked at the Art of Hundertwasser and Klimt. Both artist use a great deal of line, texture, patterns and shape to create interesting contrast and space.  We also looked at Mexican bark painting and how there use of bright color and a frame makes a piece of art much more visually interesting. The top image is just one of the ways students utilized the skills and information they received to create something with great visual interest and overall beautiful works of art.
