All-School Art Project Seals Campuses Together
When looking at this masterpiece, you may see some recurring themes. There are some “meme” faces, such as the Cereal Guy and Yes Sir. Also, have you noticed all of the cats? Apparently ODA is big on cats because there are about ten tiles with cats on them. If you look towards the bottom right corner, you can see one of the most interesting tiles. This particular one is made by the librarian from the lower campus, where she took an actual shell and imprinted the tile to make a “bubble” effect. It’s pretty cool.
In a desire to share this original project with others, Ms. Camela Giraud, tenth grade English and Journalism teacher, and her sophomore classes created a miniature version of a tile wall that they presented to this year’s subjects of her annual Biography Project. This year, Ms. Giraud had pairs of her students paired up with a student from Easter Seals, a school for disabled kids. Each student being interviewed made their own tile that was framed with the others. The framed piece was then presented to the group on May 17, as a thank you for allowing the students for their role in the Biography Project.
Being such a great and unique idea, both pieces turned out beautifully and are real eye-catchers. Take a peek at ours in the Art’s Center if you haven’t already.
