clay time = play time

we made ceramic bowls! after watching a short film outlining the art of making a sensuous and organic edge(please skip this step). we cut out a die or pattern to make our clay in to then we got slabs of clay and rolled them to 3/8 inch thickness and made them fit our patterns. then we put them over a form( a bowl in this case) and made them to our liking, after they have dyed we fired them, and now we are glazing 

Project approved by art students


contrary to common belief pastels while being grate for art their main purpose is to make your hands absolutely filthy. The amount of pastel that accumulates on your hands really makes you think that you are using the crayon wrong. but on to art, we made pastel still life drawings

 using crazy fast sketchy drawing skills, I made some pastel still life on a black paper for contrast.

pro tip: adding colorful sketchy backgrounds make it much better

paint from the arm

Gesture drawings (painting in this case) are fast drawlings that can have a lot of expression in them
Look at that lovely face!
these were fun fast paintings that we messed around on. by the end this painting had tribal markings and wings!
Told you

don't force it!

In art we studied forced prespective and went out around the school to force our prespective on the unsuspecting campus

forcing prespective on a fence!

so these not so good pictures were realy a hard feat to pull off between the camra man and the subject both getting in to position. it required quite the bit of coragraphy.
