6th grade, Art Cafe, Ms. Slom

By in ,

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 “Secret life of a pet” acrylic painting and have started a new project on “Selfies” 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 “Selfies” in the grid-type (pixelated) painting style like Chuck Close.
