Seward High Art – Mythology Prints

Seward High Art – Mythology Prints

Seward High Art Students made reductive linocuts focusing on mythology.  Students chose any mythological creature/god they wished, from a variety of cultures across time.  Then they had a friend pose for them as that god or creature, took photos, printed the best one out, and drew on top of the photo to add details from the myth, ie the snakes […]

SHS Art: Aboriginal Style Dot Paintings

SHS Art: Aboriginal Style Dot Paintings

Seward High Art Students looked South to Aboriginal Australians for inspiration for a painting project.  The indeginous people of Australia have been creating works of art covered in dots for tens of thousands of years.  They dip sticks into pigment to stamp out dots historically on bark, rocks, logs, and today on canvases.  These dot patterns tell stories and map […]

Last day of school, woop! Happy winter break and enjoy this lovely snow! Seward High art students all made designs with radial symmetry, looking to the mandalas of the east for inspiration.  We used compasses, protractors and rulers to design the rough drafts, some drawing by hand and others tracing images to make even designs repeated around a center point.  […]

Seward High Art: Leatherwork

Seward High Art: Leatherwork

I was inspired to do some deep cleaning in my supply closet and stumbled upon stashes of leather and leatherworking tools from the late 1990s I’d guess.  This deduction is due to finding Seward’s own Kris Peck’s name stamped into one of the scraps.   I decided to put this fine resource to use although I had literally no experience with […]

Happy Friday!  Here is some Ceramic Art…  (more stuff here at our blog) Humans and masks have always gone together.  Cultures throughout history have made masks for ceremony and ritual.  The masks simultaneously hide the wearer while transforming them, exaggerating some power or characteristic within.  Animal features are often used to represent the wearer taking on that animals spirit or […]

Seward High Ceramics: Ceramic Plates and Bowls

Seward High Ceramics: Ceramic Plates and Bowls

One of the fun things about ceramics is the creativity involved.  You can drape clay over almost anything to take its form as it dries; wood, plaster, newspaper, glass… Draping a slab of clay into a concave surface is called a slump mold and onto a convex surface is a hump mold.  We did both methods, using paper plates as […]
