In this photo, two of my students were adding a very interesting border. I noticed that my Art One student, "Peighton" has an excellent talent for design. I asked her to make an excellent border. You must admit, this is pretty cool. The dirty cushions I provided for the students to work on the cold, tile floor. (These were my old porch furniture cushions) I would have thrown them out, but they came in handy yesterday.
This is Beth's transferred creature. Pouncing is a transfer method which was used by Italian Renaissance artists. We punched pinholes in the drawing and placed it over our amazing black primed canvas. We rubbed the drawing with a pouch filled with baby powder. The image was transferred onto the canvas. Now Beth will do her magic with chalk and pastels.
Stay tuned. My camera's battery died. One of my students had a better camera. I am hoping she has photos of the finished product. We didn't win anything, but I think we should have. We had a fun time. The mural will be on display for a year. My students had the experience of making public art!
