Self-Isolation Art: Spring 2020
For this project, the advanced 2-D students researched 3 famous artists:
Johannes Vermeer, Albrecht Dürer, and Alphonse Mucha
After exploring videos and virtual exhibits associated with each artist, students were asked to choose one portrait painting from any of the three artists, and then reenact the painting using themselves, family members, household objects, or pets (sometimes ALL of these). Here are the results…
Students began this 3-Dimensional project by learning about the British Environmental Artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Environmental Art, also commonly known as Land Art, is the creative practice of constructing art in a natural setting, using naturally derived materials. It primarily celebrates an artist's connection with nature. Three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space are referred to as Installations. Art students at Indiana Senior High School were challenged with the task of planning and then creating their own environmental art installations.
For this project, the advanced 3-D students viewed 3 virtual art exhibits on Google Arts & Culture that focused on figural sculptures. After exploring the exhibits, students were asked to choose one figural sculpture from any of the three exhibits, and then reenact the sculpture using themselves, family members, household objects, or pets (sometimes ALL of these).
For this project, 3D-9 students were asked to collect junk mail or any other available paper for a couple of weeks in order to use the colorful pieces to create a paper mosaic of a chosen animal.
For this S.T.E.A.M. project, Art I students chose 3 objects from in their house and sketched them. They chose one object from those sketches, and created a schematic paper model, and then a cardboard sculpture of the object. This project required the art students to utilize their problem-solving skills, and also allowed them to integrate and apply knowledge learned from other classes as well.
