Grade 7 students recently completed vibrant pop culture mash-up art pieces. The project began with students choosing and researching an iconic painting. Girls then selected a pop culture reference to incorporate into their work. This project provided the opportunity for girls to delve deeper into the mechanics of painting. They learned how to: use different size and style brushes, mix paint effectively, refine their brush work, and explore the way a painting is created.
