Celebrity Portraits

The 7th and 8th grade Art classes at Saline Middle School created outstanding drawings of "Celebrity Portraits". Students selected black and white photographs of their favorite celebrity and recreated the images using the "grid" system- a system that was used during the Renaissance period, to get accurate proportions.  The drawings were enlarged 3 or 4 times larger than the original image.  Students practiced their shading skills  and the goal was to show subtle changes of value in their final drawing.  Good job middle schoolers!
