ECMS 2D artists used their talents to show appreciation to their school community by drawing portraits of every ECMS and some Walton County district staff members. Students were inspired by contemporary painter, Chuck Close, and his photorealism style. This unique approach combines grid-like pattern and color to create abstract portraits. Staff names were chosen at random and students used a photo for reference. It was a challenging task but especially daunting to draw a portrait of someone they see so often. This project was a process, but students remained positive and persevered. In the spirt of giving and thanks this holiday season, we hope you enjoy this Gallery of Gratitude presented by 7th and 8th Art grade students. Congratulations to our ECMS aspiring artists on their creativity and determination!
