8th grade is using the grid method to create an abstracted portrait. We learned about abstract artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock & Piet Mondrian. Students chose an image and used a Photoshop filter to abstract the image.
7th grade is finishing their Chuck Close Value Portraits! They created a sharpie portrait version showing value through patterns. Then, they recreated their portraits using charcoal. When they are finished they will begin an "impasto" painting.
