Decorative Painting with Bill Fisher

On Friday, 8th grade students were treated to a visit by decorative painters and artists Bill Fisher and Emily Quinn.  Mr. Fisher is a parent of two current Sandburg students, and was willing to come over and talk about his working experiences in art, along with providing some hands-on activities for students to try.

Students got to try out three different faux textures using tinted glazes: one was the look of faux marble, one look replicated wood grain, and the other was using a blue tint and cardboard to recreate an almost stone-like patterned effect.  

To the left, you can see photos of students as we tried our hand at creating faux marble.  What a fun way to finish out the first quarter of art for these 8th grade students!

Thank you Mr. Fisher and Mrs. Quinn!
