This past week I postponed the Gold Mean and proportions unit to begin a new multimedia project on Community. The students researched the concept of community and determined what community means to them. Class discussion was held regarding the works of Robert Rauschenberg, Jacob Lawrence and others. After viewing and discussing the works the students began sketches and idea searching. The students will continue the project this week by using a variety of media in order to convey their ideas.
Parents and students alike are invited to attend the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair Parade Monday afternoon. Statesboro High School’s National Art Honor Society will bring back the Living Master Pieces. This performance premiered at the Statesboro Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago and was a huge success. The students will be dressed as famous works of art or as famous artists. Please come join the festivities and support visual art at SHS and in the community.
