First off, we had to paint the wood with Gesso, which is a primer for acrylic paint (see pics below). Then, student sketched out their idea on paper which was then transfered onto the wood, which would then get them ready to start painting!!
I saw a lot of great collaboration and working as a group to figure out colors and composition. They did a fantastic job and I can't wait to see them all hung up in the school! :)
For 7th period, we chose to do a mural at the front of the school to bring in some color!! After discussing themes as a class, we chose to focus on our mascot, the Wolf and represent each team visually. Students got to choose a partner or partners to work with and some chose to work individually. It was such a fun project to work on as a group and they worked so hard on them!! I am so proud of them for it was not an easy task! :)
The teams we represented here at Wakefield are:
See below progress shots and pictures of being close to done! We still have some things to finish up on it, so check back later for our final mural!!
