Summer Slow Down: AP Studio Art Day 2

On day number 2 of AP studio art we received our assignments which are due the last day here.  Our first assignment is "Me in a Box" on the outside is how others see you and on the inside is how you view yourself. To do the outside portrait we created texture on Plexi glass with tempera paint, you can see what I tried below. You also had to take a selfie to manipulate in Photoshop.

This is the combination and manipulation of my textures and portrait.

Here are my six thumbnails, of which I didn't end up using any, but you'll see why tomorrow!

The beginning of what my inside was going to be did not stay the same. Come back tomorrow to see how it changed.

My before sketches!

This is Patricia Winnard, she is really amazing!

We also learned how to do laser image transfers, which I'll tackle tomorrow.

This is a ink reduction, I forgot to take progress photos! But this isn't the final version. For this we soaked the watercolor paper for 3-5 minutes and let the ink/watercolor run, then worked back into it with more paint or other materials.

Have you taught or used any of these techniques in your classroom? Share a link or let me know in the comments below!

  1. Just discovered your blog--you're doing a fantastic job! I am only in my second year of teaching art to middle and high school. I don't teach AP studio but I love the techniques and themes of this project. Thank you for sharing your ideas and I look forward to perusing your archives and getting excited about what I could do next year!
