All of the following art was done on white paper, and yet my photographs were taken on different days with different lighting and resulted in a variety of shades. I printed out each student's name in Chinese to add to their artwork.

The Jr/Sr High General Art class spent some time being introduced to using charcoal. Using the subject matter of a leaf seemed simple, yet was still a challenge for those students who had never used charcoal before.

Lots of cutting and pasting to make our colorful silly faces.
After they completed their faces, it was glued to a background color of their choice and then they added the hair.
The following are their results.

I love looking at all of these - such fun results.
We aren't through with these yet. We will be adding in ink line work. The end product won't be for quite a while. This is a filler project and I'm not sure when they will be done.

Often it is hard to do art on the go. It’s always a challenge to gather all the art supplies to take (mainly because I can so easily forget something) and then set everything up and clean it all up within an hour. I was wanting to tackle the task of marbling with shaving cream with my 7th-12th grade class, but wasn’t sure of the mess within the time frame. By using shortcuts we were able to successfully accomplish it and have a few minutes to spare – thanks to everyone for working so diligently and leaving the room in great shape – no shaving cream on walls or ceilings or carpet!
We worked right on the table with newspapers and then just threw everything away. Quick clean-up. I will display some of the end results once they are dry.

This was the first complete week for the coming school year ahead. Lots of projects were started. The drawing class began with sketching and shading practice for the first year students.
