Gotta Share the Naar

Not all of these images are from Naar's class but it's an interesting collection of images from work done in the second trimester (and then some random older images). We have been working hard and we're excited to get started on our next trimester!! :)

So, it's been an amazing trimester and tomorrow it comes to an end. I will miss my classes and my students and I will definitely miss their art! Take a gander at our amazing artwork! So proud.

In Drawing and Painting, part of our class explored the use of block printing. The students were asked to explore a current issue and use depict it using visual imagery. Block printing using linoleum is an age old processes of carving a "stamp" that we learned to ink up and print using a roller press.
