Color marks end of semester





















In Two-dimensional Design we end the semester with color.  Last week was the final exam.  Students used color to explore the four seasons of Washington, D.C.  We are located in the temperate zone (sort of).  We have a definite winter, spring, summer and fall but most people only remember the summers.  These are a bit hard to take....vicious heat and humidity.

The final piece in this posting is not the four seasons but another non-objective color assignment.  Again, we are working with inexpensive children's grade tempera paints.  We might switch over to using Holbein brand acryla gouache which is a reasonably priced artist grade media.
