Students scrubbed off the jet black ink to reveal beautifully colored portraits.
These are so striking, I can't post enough of them!
Good thing we used heavy duty water color paper. Great success was experienced by all! As soon as we completed washing the portraits, students began drawing more hieroglyphs in black and white. These black and whites will be used to create atmosphere around the portraits when on display.
Here are students hard at work!
Once the Portraits were completely finished, students began forming armatures for the miniature Mummies they are designing using wire and Pariscraft. Check out these armatures!
Students learned about human proportions and how to measure lengths of the head for arm length, leg length, torso, etc. Everyone seems to like exploring new mediums and excitement is in the air!
Once the armatures are completed, the students add Pariscraft to give that true mummified look!
We will continue working with Egyptian based projects throughout the semester. Each student is involved with the research and the creation of these modern day artifacts! I could not ask for a more committed group of learners! Good time had by all AND we can't wait to see the mummies when finished!
