8th grade students worked on Monsters last week, inspired by Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami. This year was especially fun because we got to use a new technique of felting wool on for extra details due to a Donors Choose project being funded! Here is a video from last year, explaining the process:
7th grade students worked on Collages last week using their previous portrait and cut up magazines. It was fun to see the creative solutions students came up with to create a face out of many other faces. you can see the full gallery on Artsonia or watch the video below.
Several students finished their projects just in time to participate in the Celebrating Art competition (deadline April 3rd)! When hearing their work could be published in a book, students really wanted to make sure to get theirs finished before leaving for Spring Break, which starts tomorrow. It will be exciting to see how many students are chosen to be published this time around; this will be our third time participating in this competition.
I will post the results as soon as I get them along with the images selected! All projects will soon be posted on our school gallery at Artsonia once we return from break.
