Painting Class becomes Landscape Painting Class in May

Painting from observation involves a coordination of the eye and the hand that requires tremendous concentration and practice. Landscape painting provides a unique challenge for artists, because unlike a static, arranged and carefully lit still life, the landscape is always changing. The landscape's light, shadow and color tone may change frequently during one sitting, and may change completely from one day to the next. As you can see in the examples below, the class did a terrific job of capturing the essence of the Newark's ever-changing landscape.

Congratulations on a Successful Show!

Congratulations to our Advanced Studio artists on a successful show! The Advanced Studio Class did an outstanding job showcasing and discussing their artwork at our thirteenth annual art exhibit. This was an impressive show - featuring a majority of ceramic work, as well as imaginative drawings and paintings. Your hard work and dedication throughout the semester was truly reflected in the show. Best wishes to our seniors, as you will be missed in the art department next year. A special thank you to all of our guests, including administration, faculty/staff, community, friends, families, and our NCHS artist alumni, for supporting our artists!

Paintings from Observation

The following paintings are the culmination of the Painting Classes' unit on still life painting. Painting from observation is like learning a new language, especially in the digital age. It involves a coordination of the hand and eye that requires tremendous concentration and practice. Students must become keen observers of light, shadow and color tone. It is remarkably different from working from a photograph or 2-D source image. View our final still life paintings below:
