The students in Color & Design explored their strengths after learning about Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. They took quizzes to find their strongest “intelligence” and then created an artwork that used or expressed that strength. They chose the subject matter, media, and techniques that best fit their interests.
The students in Color & Design spent the entire semester creating upcycled books. These books were donated from the library and given a new life. The requirements of the project were that the books had to have a consistent theme, at least two 3D “pop-up” techniques, have at least eight pages and use at least eight different types of media and a cover. I love how this project showcases each student’s interests.
The students in Color & Design were challenged to create an abstract painting of their favorite song using at least two other types of media in a creative way that represented the mood and meaning of the song.
The students in Color & Design were challenged to create an original indoor or outdoor scene using one or two point perspective in the style of Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, and Man Ray.
The students in Color & Design were challenged to create “self-portraits” that expressed their interests, hobbies, or personalities without revealing their faces. Media and choice of technique was up to each student while focusing on being original.
The students in Color & Design were challenged to create an original artwork that incorporated the theme Mythology. Students chose their medium and subject which lead to many different results.
