Art 2 - Sculpture

This project was a very fun and interesting project. It has been one of my favorite art projects I've done in a while. My project is a cliff with people diving of of it. We made these projects out of clothes hangers and nylons. We formed the hanger to the shape we wanted and stretched the nylon over it and painted it with latex paints until it became hard. That is when we all decided what we wanted to make and start the process of making our sculpture. -Blaine S.

This was one of my favorite art projects i have done this semester. At first my project was just going to be a boring structure with photos i have taken, but Mrs. J challenged me to do a camera taking a picture. Loving the idea, i went right to work on it. i took my nylons and put on the wire i bent. I painted to base black and the wire part shades of yellow to red. This was a very fun project, i made this project more me by adding a camera strap that said camera, my favorite type of camera. -Derek B


This project was a very fun and unique project. It has been one of my favorite art projects I've done. My project is a city scene in the night time with a moon. I liked how my project turned out. The sculptures in my class were awesome! Everyone did such a great job and they were very different and unique. We made these projects out of clothes hangers and nylons. We formed the hanger to the shape we wanted and stretched the nylon over it and painted it with latex paints until it became hard. That is when we all decided what we wanted to make and start the process of making our sculpture. -Britni N

This is one of our projects we did in Art II. I liked this project the most because i thought is was cool to see the different things people's imagination came up with. This project is just nylon stretched over a bent clothes hanger. Then we could paint what ever we wanted on it. i chose to do a mountain scene at night because I thought that I could use a lot of different materials. I used cotton balls for the snow on the top of the mountain and glitter for the stars in the sky. I enjoyed this project a lot and i hope this semester we have more fun projects like this one. -Marley S

This project was a very fun project to do, I enjoyed it a lot.  With this project we took a block of wood, put holes in the piece of wood and stuck a wire hanger in the holes. Then we bent the wire hanger however we wanted. Then we picked a theme that we wanted to do, my theme was earth to space. I used a variety of colors and objects to make my  sculpture. I used styro foam balls for planets, and fake trees. -Marissa B



This is one of my most favorite projects I have done in any art class. What we did was we took a wooden block and drilled two holes in it. Than we sculpted a cloths hanger to the shape we wanted and than we glued it in. After that we put a nylon and we had to paint it with latex paint, than we got to decided what we wanted to make. At first i wanted to make a house, but after i clued the glass peices on , it just looked to much like a ghost to not make it it. Than i just went with the flow and put things that i thought went with it good ; such as grave stones, a gate that looked errie. I love using all different mediums. -Courtney Rose

This project was different from many of the art objects i have made before this class. At first i wanted to make a flytrap with teeth and a mouth wide open like it was waiting for a fly to land, but then i saw that the top looked more like a U.F.O. so i decided to make an alien taking a cow up from a field to probe. This project was very entertaining and i do hope we do more like this. -Andy Manis

This was a very fun project that i enjoyed doing. I was not sure on what i was going to do right away. The first thing i did was paint it. I had to blend a lot of blues together. I added some white to the edges of it. Once i got done painting I wanted to add sand to the bottom for the beach. When i was all done with this project i really liked  how it turned out. I enjoyed doing this project and would like to do more like it. -Austin B.


This was my favorite project, because we got to design and create our very own sculpture. I chose to do a wave, because Ms. Johnson showed us sculpture from the past and I thought the wave looked really cool. I decided to put a little twist on my wave by adding a little surfer. I created her out of model magic, which is like not messy clay. I printed off pictures of a wave and based the look of my wave off of it. I love the way my wave and person turned out I think it looks really cool.  I hope we do more sculptures in the future. -Bailey V.

I enjoyed doing this project because it was new to me. I loved painting on the nylon because it felt cool and was different than just normally painting on plain paper. I decided to sculpt a hot air balloon because I thought it was original and I like to find ideas that no one has thought of before. Making the shape of the figure was the hardest part and frustrated me a bit because it wasn't working the way i wanted it to. I used tissue paper on the balloon part of the sculpture, cotton balls for the clouds, and a weaved paper basket for the hot air balloon's basket. I would love to do this project a couple more times and see if I can have awesome ideas for more sculptures.  -Chelsea M.

I liked doing this project because I liked the idea of it and that we got to do whatever we wanted to with it. I like the idea of Vegas. If i could redo this project I would choose to spend more time on painting it and getting different types of objects. I thought that the hardest part was trying to form the actual wire because it was hard to make it a way and then try to bend it another way. -Chancey.

6th Artist Reports

The students in 2nd Trimester 6th grade Art did research on different artists throughout history.


















Once they did their research on the artist's background, they created a pop out card about their artist.  They were required to paint a self portrait of their artist with watercolor paint, make a reproduction of an artwork of the artists and include born and died dates as well as more interesting facts about their artist in a visual form. 

















To finish the unit, students gave a presentation to their class on their artist.  These cards will be displayed at the March 29th Art Show in the Multi-Purpose Room.
