Art, art, everywhere…

I have not posted in a while. Sorry. It’s been super busy y’all! I got a lot of art hung up recently. It’s all in Nebinger’s auditorium “gallery” space. Endless white walls for me to hang on.

Here you see the kindergarten “Birds of a Color” or “For the Birds” project… whichever title you prefer. They mixed their own secondary colors and learned a few different ways to draw birds, all after watching Pixar’s “For the Birds”.
These are the third grade pop art portraits done in primary colors.   Below are 1st grader’s row home cityscapes, inspired by the colors and lines in the landscapes of Ted Harrison. If you are not familiar with his work, look it up. Total eye candy for kids and adults alike.
These are the 6th grade “Half-a-Selfie” portraits. Pretty self explanatory. We did a lot of prep to learn how to draw the face. I feel like a lot of them were still very uncomfortable with this though, but for it only being their second year having a formal art class (or any art at all), I think they did pretty good! Now if we could just get them to focus more and less with the talking. 😉  Here we have the 5th grade “Minecraft Me” pixelated portraits made from 1″ squares of paint chips donated by Fresh Artist and Behr paints. These were  A LOT of work to do, but I think they are quite interesting to see! 

Feel free to get in touch with me about any of the lessons. Some I found inspiration from other lessons on the web, some are classics, and some are inspired by friends. 🙂

Come check out Nebinger’s art again soon!!!
