Elements of Art Students base their work on the Elements of Art as they would do as a professional artist.
Element of Line Students use line to create movement and form.
Element of Shape Shapes are used to create images. Here they use shape as positive and negative space.
Element of Form Students create form in a variety of ways. Here they use clay to make a three dimensional mask.
Media Students at WHES use a wide variety of media to create their artwork.
Crayon Resist Crayon Resist uses crayons for texture and then water color paint is used to add a layer of color
Clay The entire school will enjoy the clay project we will create now that we have a kiln. A slab roller will be a nice addition to our clay program.
Colored Pencil We use a variety of tools in the art room to create our masterpieces. Colored pencil is one of them.
Cut Paper Shapes are cut from paper to form different types of line from zigzag to curves.
Right Now in Art Class Students are creating unique masks through hand build techniques. Here a student has taken a slab of clay and is beginning to design her project.
