Summer Series: Student Art Sample [8th Grade]

Logo

Over the course of our summer we will feature various artists and art pieces from each Jenison elementary school as well as the Junior High and High School. Each piece was carefully chosen by our art teachers and we hope you will enjoy the talents and hard work of our students while you also enjoy a beautiful and relaxing summer!

“Skin Deep”
by: Gabby Bennetts
 8th Grade, Jenison Junior High

We looked at portrait drawings as inspiration for this piece, and the students learned how to draw faces in proportion.  I challenged Gabby with exploring her imagination for a background to include with her self-portrait.  They used colored pencils to finish the piece.  I have been impressed with the progression in Gabby’s artistic skills over the last two years, and she works very hard on her projects.

Gabby and her artwork were selected by her Junior High art teacher, Nate Greenwood.
