The last few days in 8th grade art have been spent working on a watercolor animal/plant cell project. Watercolor techniques are covered in 7th grade so much of the beginning part of this project was just review. Some of the techniques we cover are wet-in-wet, rubbing alcohol and salt, graded wash, scraping, resisting and more. Showing high contrast in our work was also a major focus since our audience will be viewing these artworks digitally.
Later on this week, students will be posting a photo of their work to an Edmodo group shared with 7th grade science students. 7th grade science students will be using these photos to create Educreations video notes on parts of a plant or animal cell. Can't wait to see the collaboration results!
