It’s the final day of CADC 2013 and everyone is busy setting up for the exhibition! It’s 11:30 and the walls are already starting to fill up. Here’s a behind-the-scenes preview of what will be on display this evening:
See you at 4!
Happy Tuesday! There are tons of fantastic projects underway this morning!
The 3rd-4th graders are using Photoshop to add to their scanned blind contour drawings. So much interesting line work!
The 8th-9th grade group is investigating collections. After developing their own collection, it was time to transfer designs to paper. Some students are finishing up their sketches, while others are completing their drawings with different watercolor techniques.
In Ms. Hertel’s class, the 5th-7th graders are creating stencils with tape and card stock. Lots of neat images…including music notes AND a pig with wings! Also lots of teamwork going on here. Hooray for working together!
Last but not least, students in the K-2nd group are completing their self-portraits with a layer of paint. They are experimenting with mixing colors. The results are wonderful!
Campers explain their art projects before the student exhibition.
Thanks to Neal Swisher for filming and editing this piece!
Session 2 came to a close on Friday with a successful student exhibition! Parents, family, and friends got the opportunity to see all of the incredible pieces that were created throughout the week. But the best part of the show was hearing the campers explain the stories and ideas behind their work–what fun! See below for a visual recap of exhibition day!
We welcomed Session 3 campers this morning! Check-in went smoothly and everyone is settled into their classes. Check back tomorrow for a photo update on what each class is delving into this week!
We’re half way through Session 2 and starting to look forward to the exhibition on Friday! Be sure to check your email tomorrow for an update about the event.
Here’s a snapshot of what was going on in all of the classrooms this morning!
In Ms. Chandler’s class, the 5th-7th and 8th-9th graders were shooting their stop animation films. Lots of imaginative thinking going on here!
The 3rd-4th grade group focused on painting their animal habitats in Mr. Curley’s class. They looked fantastic! Looking forward to seeing the animals that will complete these colorful pieces.
The K-2nd group paired up to make life-sized tracings of their bodies. What fun! Next steps involve locating shapes in the drawings and filling those shapes with solid colors and patterns.
Yesterday after lunch, Mr. Curley took the 5th-7th graders on a walking tour of campus to take photographs in one point perspective. (We did a quick photo shoot outside the library–see below for our “serious” poses and our “silly” poses!) Later, the campers returned to the computer lab to resize and print the photos. Stay tuned to find out about the next phase of the project!
This morning, the 5th-7th and 8th-9th graders started building plaster masks in Ms. Hertel’s class. Can’t wait to see what these look like after they’re painted! Meanwhile, in Ms. Cohen’s classroom, supplies were being prepped for accordion bookmaking during Block 2.
The K-2 group was hard at work on collage and character design in Mr. Curley’s class!
Last Friday’s student exhibition was tons of fun. Take a look at the photos below to see some of the incredible artwork that was on display.
Session 2 is off to a great start! This morning brought several familiar faces from Session 1 and lots of new faces as well. We’re excited to see what this week has in store!
