LOVE THESE DECORATIVE WALL HANGINGS! create 3 symmetrical radial designs on 6x6" sketch paper, later transfer designs onto 36-gauge aluminum and use tools to emboss them. Black India ink was painted onto the surface of the embossed metal and later buffed away using steel wool. Use wire to hang the three pieces together and added small craft mirrors to each one to create the final decorative wall hanging (From The Calvert Canvas: School Art Camp)
These are double self-potraits- the image is a self portrait and was created using the artists fingerprints. After students have completed their portraits they will begin working on a colorful background in the style of Chuck Close’s large scale paintings. I’ll be sure to post their final pieces!
