Nothing can replace the inspiration and colorful mayhem of an actual studio, but Bolles lower school art teachers are helping students explore creativity in more virtual realms.
During the first week of Distance Learning at Bolles, Whiteurst Campus art instructor Elizabeth Miron tasked students with creating Power Point presentations to demonstrate their home work space and new routines. Using photos, words and graphics, students designed projects that reflected their proficiencies with technology, creativity and design – all important skill sets for communicating successfully in today’s global environment.
Jeanette Edwards, art teacher on the Bolles Lower School Ponte Vedra Beach Campus taught students about the works of Romero Britto, a Brazilian artist, painter, serigrapher and sculptor. His pieces combine elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti painting. Edwards asked students to render their own version of this colorful artwork. Students’ pieces were bright and reflective of their mood at home – joyful!
Distance Learning in art continues next week with more engaging activities to further students’ appreciation of and experience in art techniques, history and style.
