ELP Project

The 8th Grade Students are starting their Extended Learning Projects. The students have a choice to create an artwork that celebrates an artist that is created in the style of their chosen artist. The students could also choose to create an original artwork based on the Doodle 4 Google theme:

The students can choose from any type of medium or how the artwork will be displayed: hung on the wall, mobile (hung from the ceiling), or a free standing sculpture.
