Anita Caudle and Lori Chamber’s Art 2 classes have been working on a foreshadowing project that has taken them a week to complete. Students were asked to take a picture of themselves or have a friend help them out and draw themselves.
Students had to focus on a perspective from the viewer’s point of view. The purpose of this project was to notice that the object closest to you, as the viewer, is the largest.
Taking on the title of this week’s student artwork is McKenna Caudle. When asked what inspired her, Caudle said “ I really liked the horse, I wanted to use it for a room decoration. It’s also the horse that I trained.”
When asked how confident Caudle was in her work Caudle said “It looked funny at first but when I started putting in the charcoal and getting the proportions right it looked better. I was pretty proud of it.”
Art 2 student’s artwork will be displayed in the high school hallways for anyone who would like to view them.
Recently, Art 2 students in Anita Caudle and Lori Chambers’ classes have been working on a watercolor technique project that took about a week and a half to finish. The goal of this project was to develop the knowledge and skill to produce quality art.
Students had to use their knowledge of the elements of design, value, and texture to create their paintings. Students were to use the watercolor techniques that they learned previously and paint the animal lightly with watercolors.
In Mrs. Chambers class, Veronica Rivas was chosen for Student Artwork of the Week. Rivas created a watercolor painting of a Peacock.
When asked what inspired Rivas to paint this animal, Rivas said: “I chose this animal because I felt like it had many textures and vibrant colors to work with.”
When asked how confident Rivas was in her artwork, Rivas said “I wasn’t very confident at first. It didn’t look like anything at the beginning really but as the colors and textures came together my confidence boosted.”
Veronica’s artwork is hanging in Mrs. Chamber’s classroom for anyone who would like to see it.

Mrs. Anita Caudle’s Art 2 students have been working on a cultural masks project for the past couple of weeks. The cultural mask were made out of paper mache and designed to mimic the looks of an actual mask from whichever culture the students prefered.
This week’s Student Art Work of the Week goes to Kevin Villeda and his partner. This project consisted of working together in groups of two to share ideas of how to create the masks.
Villeda’s and his partner's masks represent the Mohawk Indian culture. When asked what inspired them to create and choose this culture, Kevin's partner said, “In middle school we learned about different tribes and it really caught my attention to see what they lived through and what they had to do for survival. Each mask they made meant something. I chose this tribe because it was really interesting and I felt as if we could really pull off the mask design.”
When the students were asked how confident they felt about their artwork Villeda said, “I was 100% confident, because my partner had everything figured out already; so I relied on him a lot and we just hoped for the best.”
Both Kevin and his partner worked hard to pull off this mask project that will be shared with their peers.
