5th and 6th Grade Art
The playing card portrait project has ended and all the students have completed their designs. The work this year on this project is really exceptional. Each student showed strong design sense and really took time to carefully stylize their portraits showing a strong resemblance on each portrait. I asked the students to not sign their work because you can tell who the artist is by looking at the work. Each piece has fine design in the layout and patterns added and the students are proud of the work hanging in the school. We will be beginning a new project this week focusing on the study of Icarus. The students will be creating a winged figure, using tools in the Maker Space and creating a sculpture. I will tell you more about the project in the blog next week.
