Life Threads in Pastels
Students interviewed a person of interest (community or family member) and used the information and pictures shared in the interview to create an artwork that tells the story of that person. Students asked to work with pastels at the beginning of the year, so I specifically looked on the platform for an artist with that experience. Ken visited once a week to teach about composition, storytelling through composite images, and techniques with pastels. At the end, students put their artwork in a frame and gifted their piece to the person they interviewed.
