Seventh Grade Art Styles Project

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 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!
