Collaboration Painting

Today we are starting one of the more difficult lessons in Art I, the Collaboration Painting! The students will apply the knowledge they have just learned about mixing colors. They will explore the grid technique, which was introduced to them in junior high.  The learning that goes on with this project is far deeper than what can be placed under standards, the Illinois Learning Standards for Fine Arts or the National Core Art Standards. There will be struggles, problem solving, and successes along the way with this project that are discrete for each student! In the end, they will have a painting (in most cases) that they are proud of!!! I will post pictures of the pieces in a few weeks.
