Second period Art 1 and 2, and 3rd period Art 2 are in the middle of a painting workshop to develop skills for an upcoming portrait unit called Back in the Good Old Days. Students will ask for stories from a member of the elderly community and incorporate symbolism from the narratives into a portrait for them. We are using a still life painting of oranges to guide our learning of painting techniques so students can combine these skills with proportions and likeness in portrait painting.
I invite you to browse this blog often to get a taste of my favorite part of my job - the process! Here I focus on students engaging with their work. If you are looking for final products, please visit our online gallery on Artsonia.
