7TH GRADE ART WHEEL 2015-2016 1ST QUARTER
cotton cloth and indigo dye bucket & various clamps and resists
Our 7th grade history teachers do a big unit on Japanese life & culture,
and asked me to do an art project that might relate to their studies.
Since I already had the Indigo vat ready to go,
I thought I'd pull it out for the young ones.
Here are my cuties,
working that indigo bucket like pros,
resulting in many incredible designs.
Let's take a look see.
But first let me show you how critical thinker,
figured out how to resist the dye above.
Very clever boy!
Sweet Astha Bisht made this amazing design above.
She got so into the process,
working extra hard at lunch
that she was able to finish two pieces.
Jonathan Gutierrez created this incredible piece above.
Keanu Keopimpha thought to use bits of rusty hardware to wrap into his design
for added interest.
Alex Min was another who loved this assignment
and worked extra hard to be able to make two.
Above is his best one.
Notice all the great ranges in value within the blue color.
And I'm pretty sure this is Ryan's from above.
The one we saw bundled before going into the dye.
Ryan told me several times that he loves symmetry :)
