Art x 3 = U

The Creative Arts students participated in a collaborative art making experience designed around the theme: celebrity.  These collaborative works of art were created by the combined aesthetic decisions and contributions of three different students, who were known to each other only as a number. Each student worked on one piece for two class periods and then switched. No one worked on a piece that was started by someone in the same class period, and no one finished the piece they began. Eight class periods later, some of our Art x 3 Collaborations look like this. Layers, upon layers, upon layers of interesting! Having witnessed the incremental evolutions of individual thoughts, responses and decisions…I’m appreciative of my students’ resolve and intrigued by their ideas. If I haven’t said so lately, I think my students are pretty awesome!!
