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!

This was a tessellation project where students created repeating patterns through the creation of their own template.
We selected this piece because, well, look at it! It’s AMAZING!! The level of detail and effort put into this piece is incredible and definitely deserves to be shared!
Some things to notice when looking at this piece is not only the level of details, but the complexity of the tessellation itself and the accuracy that she had in repeating the basic shapes.
Then within each figure, she has a wonderful range of values and colors, using highlights and shadows to help give life and form to her work!
Alli’s and her artwork were selected by her high school art teachers Sara Buzzitta and Melissa Ellis.
