When it comes to art education, the first thing most of us think about is painting.

This time, we will show you some painting projects from the art class of SIFC. The beautiful pieces of work show our students who appreciate beauty, discover beauty and create beauty from different perspectives.


Mandala


For the Middle School Art II group’s first project, they had to study patterns and basic shapes which they combined to create their own mandala designs. They did not use any rulers or equipment, and only had to rely on their own geometric instincts.


Pop Art


The Middle School Art II group were first introduced to the characteristics of Pop Art, and then they jumped into creating their own Pop Art ensemble. Each student worked on four Pop Art colour versions of the same chosen subject matter.


Sunsets and Silhouettes


The group created lovely colourful evening light effects and line work by the likes of Van Gogh’s Expressionism and the Fauves movement. They used water colour and gouache paint, pencil and lastly oil pastels to add extra colour depth. The students could choose to add any variety of silhouette imagery to their composition by drawing over their colourful effects with black markers.


Insect Hybrids


Imagine you crash-landed into an unknown planet. What would the creatures you see look like? This was exactly what the Art Appreciation and Studio group imagined during this project. They used pencil to plan their Surrealist insect hybrids and black markers for their final drawings while learning the fundamentals of basic line and mark making. Afterwards the insect hybrids were cut out and presented like real scientific specimens, paired with pins onto black foam board. As part of this component they also investigated the art of frottage, Surrealists, basic texture and viewfinders.


Organic and Geometric


This project consisted of combining organic collaged images with the strong geometric shapes found in Suprematist artworks. The students were introduced to the Modernist artworks of Lissitzky and Malevich, while they were experimenting with the differences between soft organic and hard geometric shapes. Each student first created a collage, then investigated visually geometric shapes and finally moved on to conceptualise a final artwork using colour paper, pencil and ink.


Visual Diary Exercises


The group completed various technical exercises in their sketch books during the year to investigate colour theories, perspective, anatomy and many more. Though many of the artworks were just experimental and not entirely resolved, some students managed to create lovely exercises in their visual diaries.
