Exam Exhibit and Artist Statement 2017

18 Students, Gr. 11 & Gr. 12. 
My first term with Secondary students with ESL, for me is a year of assessment of Art skills to build upon. For the final exam exhibit, students make selections from drawing class, painting, color theory, 1pt perspective, printmaking (styrofoam, eraser block, and lino), fibre - dreamcatchers, ojo de dios, and weaving, and open projects on the prompt of 'Home' and emotion self-portraits (after Van Gogh). 

Labels were required and students also wrote a 3 paragraph Artist Statement displayed beside their work. The exhibit is in the school lobby area for 2 weeks. 

They did well, and wrote thoughtfully about their experience making Art. The photos show only 2d work and not all Artist Statements are up yet.
