Back at it…. with Texture Repousse!

I really neglected this blog last year.  In my defense, I was in the midst of a difficult year in my personal life.  My marriage of 16 years ended and it was a huge adjustment period.  But, I’m back this year and motivated to be a better teacher!

With that being said, I hope to post more regularly this year!  

Currently I’m LOVING my new semester!  I have two groups of Art 1 and one small Advanced class (a mix of Art 3, 4 and AP Art & Design).  

Art 1 just finished up their unit on Texture. The classes this semester are a bit smaller than usual.  So I was able to do aluminum repousse with them!  They seem to enjoy the process, although getting them to really get deep convex and concave with them proves to be difficult. 

I show them a YouTube video that shows real Repousse and chasing techniques on metal. Then I show them this video of the technique of aluminum metal tooling.

We had some decent outcomes this time.  I was pretty happy as this was my first time having them do an objective artwork using the aluminum.
