Grade 12 Portfolio Pieces

After completing an initial series of activities, our grade 12 students have been asked to design their own portfolio pieces with a focused theme. Brittany has chosen to look at the misery of celebrity culture. Angela is looking at identity and peer pressure. Mark is illustrating the lyrics of his favourite band. Jaclyn is taking her favourite children's tales and giving them a twist of dark humour. Finally, Holly (back to do a second grade 12 course!) is looking at counter culture.

Grade 12 Reinterpretations

The second assignment the grade 12 class was given was to create a reinterpretation of a piece of art. For example, there have been many interpretations of the biblical figure David from the story of David and Goliath. Students met the challenge by choosing an artist they like from art history and then changing backgrounds, colours, props, etc. Can you recognize who they were inspired by?

Grade 10 High Contrast Paintings

These paintings definately impressed all of the parents who came to parent-teacher interviews last week. The students chose an image of their choice, manipulated it using photoshop, and painted their results on a large canvas. You make us all very proud! Miss G
P.S. I also caught the high contrast bug, and painted the yellow car in this set of pictures.
