8th grade students are still painting their figures today.
Thanks to our Applied Arts teacher, Lary Shoemaker, we were able to get bases to help these figures stand upright.
Students are trying to match colors with their poses and the personalities and interests being exposed in the sculptures.
We should be done with these by tomorrow!
This idea was inspired by artist/teacher Gregory Barry.
I usually keep posts to one a day, but this was just too cool to wait until tomorrow to post!
Our National Junior Honor Society came to us with a request for some imagery for the halls that spoke to the concepts of standing up for what is right. Who better to use as an example than Martin Luther King Jr.?
Students from Mrs. Langford's 7th grade Orchestra class are the one's creating this large fingerpainting of MLK, which will be a part of a bulletin board outside of Mrs. Bastic's room later next week.
Teaching Visual Arts since 2004 and making images since picking up a crayon.
