Mrs. Angleton’s Art Classroom
News from the Art Room
Welcome to room 304! We have been doing some exciting stuff.
Sixth grade students are busy improving their drawing skills with the help of several drawing techniques that trigger the right hemisphere of the brain. Artist use the right hemisphere to see details. We have been talking about negative space and how the left hemisphere of the brain is unable to store imagines of negative space. Relying on stored images from the left hemisphere of the brain causes the young artist to draw inaccurately. When the artist uses the right hemisphere of the brain to concentrate on the negative space they can draw the image more precisely.
Seventh and eighth grade students are creating batik designs. This ancient method of producing colored designs on textiles with dye and a series of wax layers makes a beautiful piece of cloth. The students are very excited to be using a different medium.
