First get a paper and draw your head. Your head should be an oval with a pointy part on the bottom. Then draw your neck. Your neck should be two lines facing each other like two brackets. Then draw your eyes. You might need a mirror. Then draw your mouth. Your mouth should be like a really long M. then draw a line in between them next draw some hair. After that draw your nose, then draw your eye brows. When doing your nose just draw a line and four brackets. Also when doing your pupils make them just above the corner of your mouth. Then if you want to, draw arms and hands. To do the background think of something you really like then draw it but don’t draw anyone in it.

Cornhusk Dolls by William

A week ago we did cornhusk dolls. We had help with them from the Division Four people first.

We had four pieces of cornhusks and we held them and tied one end of together. Then we turned the doll upside down and peeled it like a banana and tied it again to make the head. Then we got a piece of cornhusk and put it between the cornhusks for arms. Then we decorated them.​

How to Make a Collage (with ripped paper)!

                                        by Caty

The first thing you need to do when making a collage is to decide what the picture is going to be of. Once you’ve decided gather your coloured paper and background paper. You’ll also need a glue stick. After you’ve got all these things start ripping your paper. It most likely won’t come out perfect and that‘s okay! It’ll most likely take a while to perfect it so you should either do it over or keep practicing. Once you have finished the ripping your shapes out lay them out on your background paper. If you’re happy with how it looks, begin to glue down your paper. If you don’t think it looks quite right add or take away a few things and if it still doesn’t look right either do it over or keep practicing. I strongly advise you to keep practicing!​

Water Colors by Brendan

On May 1, 2015 Division Seven painted using water color paints. First we practiced using water color by doing wet on wet, dry on dry, wet on dry, mixing colou​rs and picking up colors. Then Division Seven got brushes and paper napkins to wipe our brushes with, a cup to put our brushes in to rinse them. Next we filled up our cup with water. Then we drew a horizon and under the horizon we painted green for land and over the horizon we painted blue for the sky. In the sky we left some white paces for clouds. To pick up color you dry your brush and dab it on the color.​

Making Ravens by Ethan

When Division 7 went to the gym for art we had a lesson abut Native American stories. When we were done the stories part we put on a shirt called a smock. After that we drew the outline. Then we colored the inside of the raven. Then we put water paint over it.

 Ravens by Kaz

On Monday in VanGo​ we did raven pictures. I was very good a drawing the raven. I only used black pastel to make the raven. I saw that the eagle and raven beaks are very different. Now I will show you how to draw a raven: 1. Get a black pastel.

2. Make two diagonal egg shapes.

3. Make a tail.

4. Make a beak.

5. Make a wing.

Then you are done!

Self Portraits by Nikki

Self portraits help us to learn how to draw better. With them you can master oil pastels and self portraits.

How to make a self portrait:

Step 1: First you make an egg shape for the head. Then you get a ruler and make lines with the ruler.

Step 2: Make the eyes and ears and lips.

Step 3: Make your shirt/dress then make the background.

Step 4: Put blue food coloring and wait until it dries.​

Art Fair: Projects
2015 05 19 004e.jpg 
Two of our students did projects for the Art Fair on the local Artist Susan Point. When she heard about this she sent us a beautiful gift of art and books. The class was thrilled to hear that a real artist knew who they were and was encouraging them to keep doing art. Of course, we sent her some thank you messages.
