AP students just finished these amazing trompe l'oiel mixed media still life drawings...yes they are drawings! Trompe l'oeil is a french term meaning trick of the eye. Trompe l'oeil paintings have a rich history that spans decades and can are often done today as modern side walk drawings (you often see on the internet) Students used the clipboard as a base for building their still life. They cut, clipped, and layered real objects on to a real clip board and used it as reference to create their drawing. Each clipboard has a theme. For instance, one is about a student's grandmother and another is about beauty. Each student made choices about which medium to use and when. These are currently on display in the G-Wing showcase.

Issued to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first showing of Warhol’s paintings of the celebrated soup can, the labels come in four brilliant color combinations, like blue with orange or teal with hot pink, to mimic the artist’s style.

"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
