Students at Sunset School began the school year by creating a design for the front of their art portfolios. Each student will have a portfolio to keep all their artwork for the year. Students began this project with a printmaking lab. They were able to try a variety of printmaking techniques including: fruit and vegetable prints, string printing, Styrofoam printing, and stamping with handmade stamps.
During our second session, students used their prints and other paper to create a collage that would decorate one side of their art portfolio. While designing their collage, students took into consideration the elements of art: pattern and shape. They also designed a composition that showed unity and variety of the elements.
