7th grade students are exploring ways to show value in their work through the use of our different shading pencils or stippling with Sharpies. We used Chuck Close and Noli Novak as artists of inspiration for this work. Novak is also being used to inspired the collage portraits being done in class, like the one below. Using a variety of media at once is always fun in the art room and I look forward to seeing how the work turns out in a few days.
