Honors Art 5 field trip to SF MOMA

The Friday before Halloween LMC's Honors Art 5, and a few extra honors students, passports in order and shots current, journeyed to SF's Museum of Modern Art. We saw works we'd only seen reproductions of, including Diego Rivera, Freda Kahlo, Mark Rothko, Clifford Still, Alexander Calder and many others. Robert Arneson's self portrait was hit with the students, who just had to make photos with it.

Everyone got back in one piece, so we're claiming the trip was a success.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below.

Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.









Light and high school students

Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.
