It has now been over a month of Distance Learning and students have generally become used to online work, but so far the biggest changes are with art classes. Without the resources from the school and the time every day to work, student artists have had to adjust. As I only take studio I can’t speak for 3D or theater students, but studio art students have had to be creative, with many building their own easels or workspaces at home. Here are some examples of homemade student setups:
For supplies, they’ve probably had to raid Michaels or Blick, or even found some old crayons and colored pencils from kindergarten.
Many students have been working hard and produced a lot of great art on their own, while others who might be slightly less motivated are taking this time to relax (I am among this group). Some examples of the work students have done during quarantine:
Because we can’t display student art or have it hung in the halls, hopefully here we can recognize the great work student artists have been doing and how they’ve had to cope with Distance Learning.
