Students created Pop Art Portraits using acrylic paints on canvas board. The artists experimented with monochromatic value scales and a grid technique for creating detailed portraits.

Additionally, students had the opportunity to experiment and create Abstract Art with alcohol inks on latex paper under the tutelage of local art instructor, Amanda Braun.

Lastly, students created a universal message through their mixed media projects. The students employed layering, image transfer techniques, paint, pen and whatever materials they felt like experimenting with to create their designs.
