AVI3M- Grade 11 Artist Chairs

This semester our grade 11 students were asked to research an artist and design a chair as if they were that artist. They were challenged to go beyond simply painting the seat and consider the entire chair as a canvas for design. Here you can see the results- check out the details by clicking on each picture.

AVI10 & AVI20 Stipple Art

Stipple (or pointillism) is a technique where drawings are shaded with hundreds or even thousands of little dots. This year, our students were asked to create a picture of a vehicle using this technique. It's amazing what kind of three-dimensionality we can achieve with just a bunch of dots! Click on the photos for a closer look.
I would like to note that not all of the assignments are here- unfortunetly it seems I need to replace my camera, as it didn't save many of the pictures that I took :(

Grade 9-10 Sculpture

As you can see from the date of this post, May was a very busy month! However, I knew that you would want to see some of the grade 9 and 10 sculpture projects. The grade 9s created Alebrijes (Alay-bree-hays), a Mexican style of folk art. The grade 10s created their own gargoyles from clay, based on Medieval art history.  All groups also created soap stone sculptures, but they took them home so quickly that I didn't get a chance to photograph them.
