Title: Importance of Morristown

Teacher: Mrs. Bartlett

Theme: Representing Others

Materials and techniques: Tempera paint, transfer paper, Sharpie markers, watercolor paint, tape, pencils, sponges, newspaper, paintbrushes and water. A major technique that my group used was mainly dabbing the paint brush with the paint.

Did you enjoy this project? My group did enjoy working on this project, but had technical difficulties collaborating with each other. Collaboration was a major issue because everyone would get frustrated with each other. When we had trouble with collaborating we all needed a break since everyone was frustrated, especially when it came to finishing the project.

About: My group’s artwork is about the importance of Morristown from when many people died because of a pathway going through war. Our artwork now shows how it looks like today and a little memory for all the soldiers that died.

Title: Morrisscape

Teacher: Mrs. Bartlett

Theme: Conservation

Materials and techniques: Chalk pastel, blending in the colors to make it seem realistic. With the chalk pastels, we experimented on paper first so we can see what type of color we wanted to make. Shading to make it look more realistic.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, we completely enjoyed it! We loved coming together to create something that can make it catch the viewer’s eyes. We also came together as a group with different techniques and ideas and decided to bring our skills together. So it was a great experience working with people who have different ideas, skills, techniques, and different forms of using chalk pastel. We had a blast using the chalk pastel and coming together as friends.

About: Our artwork consists of seeing the beauty in landscapes within the Morristown park. The history behind it can also make it more beautiful, to see that history throughout time can make something beautiful like Morristown. We are trying to make our viewers see the colors to represent the energy within the history, to make our viewers start thinking about every place because every place has history behind them.
