Introducing 'The Arts' at Randolph Union High School
RU was pleased to welcome Lauren McKeon, who just happens to be an RU alum, on board this fall. Lauren will lead the Theater Arts/Drama department, and she's already got her students thinking creatively.
Here is a video of their 1st puppetry class assignment, which was to create a mood in a video using only paper and their fingers.
This project was a collaboration between two Randolph Union Art Classes: 2D/3D and Drawing/Painting. Each class chose from 13 local houses in the town of Randolph, with a variety of styles ranging from Italianate, Victorian, Colonial, and more.
The 2D/3D class was instructed to create their house using cardboard, xacto knives and glue. They were reminded to construct using the elements of space: back, middle, and foreground.
The Drawing/Painting class drew the houses the same size as the other class. They used drawing techniques to emphasise line, value, and balance and texture. When those elements were completed, they were then given the added challenge of identifying the architectural styles on the exterior of the home.
