Student's artwork by Elbert and Sophia
Now, Elbert and Sofia among the students have moved out of the two-dimensional world and into the three-dimensional world. Today they tried making a tree using artist tape.
Artist tape has the advantage of not having to think about the order of drawing an object separately and then drawing the background or drawing the background and then drawing the object. Using this, children can paint the background more comfortably and boldly. This method also helps to enhance children's understanding of space and solids by expressing the empty white space seen after removing the tape in three dimensions.
10-year-old Sophia finished her first watercolor painting today using artist's tape. She wanted to express the sunset and then paint the trees swaying in the sunset. It is a well-expressed picture as she intended.
Elbert, 10 years old, inserted a colorful and beautiful landscape between the trees.
He also adds a woodpecker, so the painting is rich and beautiful, and there is plenty to see.
It was a difficult concept to deal with artist tapes for the first time, but as always, the children boldly use their creativity to succeed.
