Bonjour! Grade 8's have started the year by analyzing some of the social, political, and economic factors that affect the creation of graffiti in various communities around the world. We discussed how artists often use symbols and signs in their work, as well as how art is used to communicate messages.
Students have begun practising lettering and are currently planning out their ideas to create their final piece. These sketches look amazing so far!
I will post pictures of the beautiful graffiti projects soon... but in the mean time, take a look at what students have been doing in the past two weeks.
Students are using painting techniques to create textures which they will use in their new project. Students have been asked to choose someone they find inspiring, and create a large scale portrait of the person. Looking forward to seeing these inspiring people around the school!
