Delta Middle School art students studied one-, two- and three-point perspective, historic black-and-white photographs of Delta and nearby towns, and the art style of expressionism to create the framed works of art that are displayed at Clubb's Frame Shop and Bank of the West.
Alexia Quinn, Shelbi Ledesma, Katrina Bate, Kaleb Hawkins, Alex Rolf, Alexis Williams, Jade Mahaffey, Devin Seittman and Stormi Archuleta participated in the project organized by DMS art instructor Anna Couch.
Couch was deliberate about selecting the businesses to display the students' artwork.
"There are six pieces at Clubb's Frame Shop, because owner Hartland Clubb has always been helpful and supportive of my students, providing show space, special ordering sketchbooks and selling at a discount to students," she explained.
The three pieces displayed at Bank of the West are in appreciation for a donation through the organization Donors Choose. Couch submitted a grant request through Donors Choose to buy the frames for the students' artwork.
Couch explains, "Donors Choose is an organization that matches up folks who want to donate money with teachers who need a hard-to-find resource for specific projects." More information is available at donorschoose.org.
All of the pieces of art are for sale, with the proceeds going to the students and the DMS Art Studio to replace the frames.blog comments powered by Disqus
