Grade 9-10 Art and Craft Projects
The second quarter of this year's no face-to-face classes is almost over. But I noticed that my two girls who are in grades 9 and 10 had fewer art and craft projects than usual. (I'll share just four projects in this post.)
That doesn't mean, though, that they did not have a lot of projects and homework. Actually, in other subject areas (not Art or MAPEH), they still did projects that require their creativity i.e writing poems, making posters, presentations, etc.
Okay, that's enough chit-chat. Let's talk about the art projects.
1. Architectural Collage
This first project is a simple one -- obviously about learning ancient Greek architecture. I like what my grade 9 daughter did in using a vintage map as a background for the collage. I also like the cut and paste of letters from magazines. Very nice.
2. Painting with Natural Dyes
- For black color, she used powdered charcoal dispersed in a little water.
- For brown color, she used spent coffee grounds dispersed in hot water.
- For the orange color, she used chili-garlic oil.
3. Silhouette Painting
4. Headdress Using Recycled Materials
- Printed the unity image and cut it out.
- Covered the image with silver - reused old gift wrapping paper.
- Painted a cardboard green then cut it out to fit the base of the headdress.
- Attached the silver-covered image on the green cardboard.
- Folded chocolate candy foil wrappers into shapes of petals or leaves and stapled them around the outer edge of the cardboard.
Here is my daughter modeling the headdress she made with a matching simple dress and a green scarf as a belt.
