Mr. Hyatt is pleased to announce that students from his High School Studio Art classes are exhibiting their work at Crouse Hospital. The artwork is being displayed in a rotating exhibit that will be changed every two months throughout the school year. The exhibit is in three showcases located on the bottom floor across from the surgery waiting room.
The exhibit contains work done by students during their Friday Observation Drawings. Having students regularly engage in the process of observation drawing is the best way to train the eye to see and to build drawing skills. As part of the process, students set up their own still-life with objects provided by the art teacher. Students then need to complete three drawings within a 42-minute class. The first two drawings are timed, with the first being three minutes and the second being five minutes. The students have the rest of the period to complete the final drawing. Although these drawings are not traditional in terms of their completion, they give an insight into the students’ drawing skills and their powers of observation.
The following is a list of vocabulary and drawing concepts utilized by the students:
Line Quality Contour Line
Shape into Form Positive Areas
Variety Negative Areas
