8th grade artists
Students are creating comic strips with at least 3 storyboards and a title box.
Students have the option to create their own character(s) or select one that was provided by a Pickett's Mill artist. If students selected a character from the elementary artist, they will collaborate in a vertical team show at Allatoona High School on Thursday November 29th at 7 p.m. Allatoona High School artists will also be participating in this collaborative event.
Students are using their photograph to create a 2D artwork inspired by the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead. Students are including symbols that represent that day as well as placing paint and designs on their face to symbolize sugar skulls. Students learned about artist Jose Posada and his skeleton prints as well as many facts about Día de los Muertos.
