Many of you know that I teach art at Hyde Middle School. We recently finished putting up a bunch of paintings around campus that reflect selected modern art styles. Students worked in groups to select different styles ranging from surrealism to non-figurative (a detail of the photo realism painting is shown above). They then researched their style and made works of art impersonating that style with their own twist.
Anyway, thought you might want to check out the paintings on our class gallery. The kids are making a podcast to give a tour of the paintings on campus and explain what they learned during the process, but it’s still in the works. It was a really fun project!
