High School Art Projects




Students were to take an existing ornamental shape and paint it in an interesting way and to the best of their ability. All of the results were completely different- only the wooden frame shape was the same.



We took a family trip to Mexico where we saw many wood and papier mache figures. In the classroom, three dimensional design students made their own using cardboard bases and layers of white plaster. The projects were finished with acrylic paint.



This tin box was underpainted in a variety of colors, overpainted in black, and the design scratched in.
