For the past two years , students in my 11/12 2D Art elective have created "Kite" Self Portraits as a final project.

The Kites are permanently installed in the hallway at JBHA. 

Here are the pieces , just completed by my 11th grade class.

Graffiti Art

A section of my 9/10th grade "Understanding the Many Forms of Art" course finished up a Graffiti Art project. Each student developed a "tag" for themselves , based on an aspect of their personality. Students then selected a wall to tag .... 










Almost Finished ......



My middle school students have been working feverishly to finish up the "Nature" themed mural that will be installed in the new Saligman/JBHA  middle school.

Here , students are grouting the piece .
