Seventh Grade Art Styles Projects
Seventh Grade students were assigned an Art Styles research project. Each student was responsible for researching a given art style (e.g. Baroque art, Pre-Columbian art, Op Art, etc.) and sharing their findings with the class.
Student-generated artifacts were encouraged... and, I must say, I was truly impressed by what the students created! A small sampling of their work...
Seventh Grade Day of the Dead Fabric Sugar Skulls
Seventh Grade students are working hard on a new-to-our-program art project. They are creating fabric Day of the Dead sugar skulls. Some of the skills they are learning and/or honing are acrylic painting, embroidery, button sewing, machine sewing, stuffing, and finishing using whipstitch.
A glimpse of their progress... final sugar skulls will be on display during the Middle School Enrichment Showcase in May 2016!
