Grade 10/11 Visual Arts – Sculptures

The Grade 10 and 11 Visual Arts classes get a little messy with their new pieces. The class was to make a sculpture from clay. Many of the students decided to create a very natural sculpture, like a branch, a clam, or a crab. Other students decided to make sculptures that made use of positive and negative space, leaving holes in their sculptures. Some, have even decided to make their sculpture practical by creating a ring holder, a key rack and even a candle holder. It is great to see the amount of diversity in the work and the amount of detail that goes into the pieces.

Grade 12 Media Arts Students Design iPhone Skins

The Grade 12 Media Artists are getting a chance to apply their art skills in a new way this year. Thanks to the Toronto based company “Gelaskins” that is run by Kingston natives, the students will be receiving complimentary iPhone skins showcasing their own artwork. This gives the students a chance to apply their Photoshop and Illustrator designing skills in a real-life context and get the chance to create something that is really relevant to teenagers. The artists are putting their whole effort and creativity into this project and are creating not only digital art, but also mixed media art using additional mediums such as water colours. The designs will be completed by Monday, November the 18th and the skins should be arriving in December.

Shannon McCarthy uses Illustrator to create her design. Patterns, like the one Shannon is making are very trendy designs and many are top sellers on the Gelaskins website.
