Each week I plan to feature another artist. So keep posted.
As for my art students, so far we have discussed altered books and pages from discarded books to create narrative works from. This week end they created mood boards to decide what portfolio path to take. There are two portfolio choices: 2-D or Drawing. For the next five weeks, the students will be "playing" creatively with various media addressing several themes from each portfolio. Photos coming soon!
