We ended the term with students working on these free abstract painting inspired by artist Dean Nimmer!
6th Graders have been working collaboratively in small groups to create a spectacular mural of their icon. Students watch a video about the artist, Vik Muniz, to help inspire ideas about assemblage materials they would use for their piece.
Make sure you visit the art show on November 5th to see the finished pieces!!
6th graders are learning about discerning values in faces and will be using these skills in our upcoming Icon Assemblage Murals. Here are some in-progress examples from this study
Students showed their found object pieces at our recent art show, and had a written description next to their pieces to add to the work.
