6th grade students have completed their unique, one-of-a-kind art project that will be available for purchase at our silent auction at the annual School Gala on February 20th, 2016.
Students have completed their Ã¢â‚¬Å“Secret life of a petÃ¢â‚¬Â acrylic painting and have started a new project on Ã¢â‚¬Å“SelfiesÃ¢â‚¬Â inspired by Chuck Close. We started out by looking at many portraits painted by Chuck Close (1940-). The students then took selfies that were printed out and drew a grid over them on to a sheet protector. The students then got BIG wrapped canvases and painted it with acrylic paint in a color of their choice and drew their portrait onto the canvas and then drew the grid on top of the portrait. They are now working on painting their Ã¢â‚¬Å“SelfiesÃ¢â‚¬Â in the grid-type (pixelated) painting style like Chuck Close.
