LepsArt - A Year in Review

My first year at Louisville Middle school was a good one! I can't believe it has come to an end.

The students were kind and hardworking, and their art was really impressive.

Students were eager to share their creativity through social media platform, Instagram, with their hashtag #lepsart. We had fun with our food around Thanksgiving and worked on art that wasn't just an assignment.

I saw students receive local recognition for their artistic endeavors through ArtsInStark and Battle of the Brush. The Louisville District Art Show was memorable as many ribbons were handed out by local artist, Tim Carmany, and Massillon Museum curator, Mandy Pond.

Outside of class I saw a student showing her personal work at a local gallery.

Really, the dedication of these students is remarkable.

The Other Half (Intro to Art Drawing Assignment)

Students chose half of an animal photo, and worked on recreating the other half in pencil using a line, implied texture, and a full range of value. They did a good job recreating the images!
