What kind of marks did Van Gogh make? Dots, dashes, swirls, woven lines, horizontal and vertical marks. The challenge for this assignment was to make a marker drawing using two or three of the "Van Gogh marks". It was quite challenging, but the students achieved some remarkable results.

Sculpture & Pottery students are taking turns throwing on the wheel. Some are getting quite good at it. There is only way to do this -- try, try again. The first efforts at this will never be awesome, and we all have to make a few flops. After a while, if you stick with it, they get better -- like the one above!

Daniel Kingsley is a very talented artist in Art I this year. The painting above he completed, start to finish at home as an extra credit assignment. He has many very specific interests that he explores through art from every angle. He is especially interested in Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish culture.

The large sculpture is called Mr. Brushy. This was created by students at my request to help students remember how to care for brushes. His permanent home is by the art room sink, next to a poem (or song, if you sing it)
Mr. Brushy is your friend
You must wash him again and again
But do not store him upside down,
Or his smile becomes a frown.
