New 7th Grade Work

The seventh grade students in Mr. Adams’ class have recently completed not one but two projects based on animals. The first are ceramic masks based on the style of the native people of the Pacific Northwest. Students chose an North American animal and used smooth and fluid, but still strong forms to design their masks.

DSCF0804While the masks fired in the kiln the students began their next lesson, a careful study of another animal rendered in graphite from a photograph.  These drawings,  though not necessarily totally completed, began with basic shapes and then focused on value and texture.  These sketches will be the basis for the next lesson in which students will look at  the work of Maine illustrator and artist, Dahlov Ipcar.
