7th Grade Art:
Due to 7th grade being at Outdoor Ed this week, I was unable to snag a blog poster from the group for today! Seventh graders ended up having two days of art this week: Monday as a regular class day, and one day after that (either Wednesday or Friday) as a double-class period, which was spent marathon painting!
We're attempting to finish up our monochromatic portraits before the end of art next week, and get them photographed/graded/uploaded to Artsonia all before the last day. Fingers crossed!

In other art news...
Our very own Art Institute of Chicago was voted the #1 museum in the world by TripAdvisor! I love the Art Institute!
Mrs. Fullerton in the library got us a copy of the book, Face Book, by Chuck Close! His book is on this year's Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award list. I just love Chuck Close's work, and the pages with his different faces are super fun to flip through in thirds, which re-combine to make new awesome compositions and allow you to compare his techniques side-by-side.
Thanks for another great week!
