Working with our contour line portraits, students are adding colors and adjusting to working on top of black gesso. The first things students notice is how bright the colors can appear when white is added and when they water down the pure hue they create subtle shadows and shades. Everyone's approach is different, some more expressive with color than others. Overall, a fun project to watch develop.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
