Plastered!



The Ceramic II students are taking on the BOW (Body of Work) projects.  The premise of the project is to create a cohesive body of work that is unique, unified and challenges their skills.

The video below is the beginning step for Chelsey's BOW which will be a series of masks that exhibit different human emotions.

Seventh Grade Art Books

The Seventh Graders at Menahga Middle School are part of a rotation that lasts from 6 to 9 weeks.  During the course of that time, they learn the Art Elements, Design Principles, and are introduced to a variety of media and artists or art styles.  To fully understand the concepts, the students create a Clay Covered Accordian book that houses a minimum of 8 works that address a specific media, art element and Design Principle.  Some look more in depth at artists or a style of art, such as Wayne Theibaud, Georgia O'Keefe or  Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.  Below are some of the various artworks that have been created through the years.
