Paint roller drippy paint thing rainbow bulletin board!

A display of student cave art. Take it or leave it. But the bulletin board setting is amazing. I like how this teacher did the dripping paint thing at the bottom, and the paint roller thing at the top is pretty terrific too.

Autumn Agamograph

You look at these one way and you see one picture; look at them the other way and you see another picture. Pretty tricksy!

All it takes is folding the paper into accordian pleats and then drawing on half; then bending the cleats the other way and drawing on that portion. Here is a recipe to make your own.

Krazy ‘Katecture at the MOMA

A recent math and art workshop brought me to Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art. There I had the opportunity to see many models made with mind-melting minutia. The maker? Mr. Bodys Isek Kingelez.

Paint Cubes

Pour your acrylic paint into an ice tray with a popsicle stick in the middle. Freeze. Remove and paint. This is as cool as it sounds (no pun intended).

Arty Books

I met an art teacher who showed me some beautiful handmade books she had created. I especailly like the accordian one.

 

Gray vs Grey

As a follow up my Black and White vs White and Black Google image search comparison, I decided to do a “gray vs grey” Google image search comparison. Here are the results:

Gray

Search filters that showed up include:

  • silver
  • titanium
  • pewter
  • aesthetic
  • charcoal
  • metallic;
  • dark; and
  • transparent.

I spy “Whistler’s Mother.”

Compare this to a search for “grey” (the British spelling of the word):

Search filters that showed up include:

  • charcoal
  • shades
  • solid
  • ash
  • metallic
  • aesthetic
  • steel; and
  • medium.

I spy a wolf.

Try this comparison yourself, and tell me what filters you found.

Black and White and Black

I was thinking about Google searches. I searched for “Black and White” and “White and Black.” Look at the different suggestions? filters? that Google adds to the search bar.

“Black and White” image filters:

  • woman
  • baby
  • instagram
  • snapchat
  • trippy
  • photoshoot
  • cityscape
  • reflection
  • etc

 

“White and Black” image filters

  • abstract
  • love
  • romantic
  • clipart
  • rose
  • radha krishna
  • pattern
  • background
  • etc

There was some overlap in the images, though.

Beardy Face

I was a “computer art” teacher for a couple of years, back in the day, back in district 26.

I used some of these lessons.

 

 

Poem, by DDD

Dear darling daughter Isabelle wrote this poem (whether for a class or no, I don’t know). What grade do you think she is in?

Sketch on Smart

I was at 721K and a teacher demonstrated how to sketch on her new flat-panel Smart Board. She is herself a brilliant artist and watching her was hypnotic.
