Student work and gallery
Student work on Expressionist Self-Portraits, exploring innovative ways to rethink the Self-Portrait process. Students answered the question, "How can I create an image that shows my core characteristics through color?"
Students explored the portrait process by breaking down a traditional portrait into geometric and organic shapes. They were asked, "What are the foundational building blocks of the human face?" Students finished their work with a monochromatic color scheme, focusing on defining value in each face using lights and darks.
Students and faculty welcomed professional artist, Jennifer Linsky, to discuss the life of a painter, the MFA process, and how she balances the practical and creative aspects of her life. Thank you for your sharing your invaluable experience!
Egg Shell Mosaic Diptych
Surrealist Transformation project
Students were challenged to transform an inanimate object into a living creature, using inspiration from the Surrealist movement. They explored Max Ernst, Dali, and Marcel Duchamp's influences on the art world and evaluated their contributions to art's larger conversation as a whole.

Our Jr. High students wrote two art goals for the school year. One was an affective goal and one was an academic goal. All the goals are hanging in the room as a visual reminder of where they are and where they are going this year in art!
