We wrapped up this amazing school year with another round of independent art projects. Each student filled out a contract that outlined their plan of action, their research goals, and their three most important overall goals for the project. It was their three overall goals that I used as a measure for how I would grade them. This was, after all, their final exam.
Check them out:
A small street in Puerto Rico.
The four seasons.
Lily Pulitzer inspired.
A Maggie O’Neal reproduction done by another Maggie.
Endangered animals, made with real life cut-outs, and some photoshop skills.
My students did an amazing job embracing their own strengths and interests in these finals. They were aware of their limitations an abilities and strived to create works of art they could be proud of. As a result I am very proud of all of them. Obviously I could not picture all of them here, so you can imagine there are some really impressive works you are missing out on.
