What’s Happening at DAA?
Middle School Art is proud to present the second Digital Art Exhibition for the year, showcasing the student’s Unit 2 artworks from Semester 1.
Grade 8 World Art focused on Mexico and researched five prominent artists; José Aguila, Diego Rivera, Gabriel Orozco, Leonora Carrington and Frida Kahlo. They selected one artist and appropriated their artwork, to create an original piece. Students could use any art forms and materials they wished. It was fantastic to see such a variety from painting, drawing, digital art, mixed media and sculptures.
Grade 8 2D Art focused on the difference between geometric and organic shaped. They took realistic animals drawings and reduced them to geometric forms, then added their own creative flair to complete the final artworks.
In Grade 72D Art students appropriated very famous artworks using acrylic paints. They learnt ten new painting techniques and applied as many as appropriate in their canvas paintings.
Grade 6 Quarter 2 Art classes focused on Orphism and the art of Sonia Delaunay. They created their own abstract paintings looking at color and shapes. They also completed a number of Animal Square drawings that focused on cropping and layout.
Congratulations to all artists that completed their first semester of electives. The artworks are on display in the Middle School and available to view on this Digital Art Exhibition video, enjoy!
