Students learned how abstract artists were influenced by the invention of the camera. When the camera was invented some artists decided they no longer wanted to represent the real world. Instead they focused on non-representational shapes, lines, colors and textures. The 6th graders also learned five different watercolor techniques that they used in their abstract art projects.
Hello, my name is Megan Albright. I teach all of the 6th grade art classes, two 3D Art classes and one sections of 8th grade art at the Marlboro Middle School. I have been teaching in the Marlboro School District for 13 years and it is such a pleasure to witness my students excitement and growth during the year. Please take some time to check out the magic that happens in our art room!
