Studio Art Students Continue Making Amazing Work Remotely—See Their Art!

Students in the Upper School’s studio art and advanced studio art classes are continuing to do amazing work as they now find inspiration at home.
The artists recently had an assignment with the choice of a portrait project or a still life project. They could use either colored pencils or the digital-painting program Procreate.  
The results, Upper School visual arts teacher Phillip Griswold said, have been inspiring.
“It’s been a challenge re-creating lessons and pivoting to different materials and processes, but I’m impressed with how these students rose to the challenge,” Mr. Griswold said. “In trying times creativity does not decrease, it increases.”
Mr. Griswold has created video demonstrations of the projects instead of in-class demonstrations that usually take place. Students can access the demonstrations at any point and are used in conjunction with individual and group instructional time on Zoom.
“Making art from home is challenging, because of the need for space, equipment and training,” Mr. Griswold said. “Our students have worked hard and creatively, and they’ve come up with incredible results. I am so proud of these creative artists!”
