Gili Sherman, Middle School Art Teacher
Inspired by the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo, Bernard Zell eighth grade artists explored facets of their identity, life experiences and values through art. The students learned a method for drawing their faces in the correct proportions and also explored how to create and integrate imagery, symbols and a background setting that would represent their ideas and tell their personal story. The students mastered working in oil pastels for a layered and textured effect. In an inner "frame" the students added a statement from either a wise older person in their family, a line from a beloved book, lyrics from a song or the words of someone they admire.
