Mixed Media A: Thematic Weaving

In Mixed Media A, the students have started working on a thematic weaving. So far they have decided on what their theme will be and selected a list of 10 words that are possibilities for them to incorporate into this idea. They were encouraged to come up with 2 options for the overall shape of their project including one that is a realistic object related to their theme. We spent a day or two working on watercolor paintings using the techniques learned in our first project. Using acrylic paint, we have started to add stamps with bottle lids, yarn, toothpicks, and crayons. Some students had extra time while waiting for their paint to dry and have started gluing strips down or searching for letters in magazines to get a head start on the words that we will incorporate.
