CONGRATULATIONS to Fabiha Anjum from 804 for winning the PS art contest!! Her artwork was chosen out of 1,200 students from all around New York. Fabhia's artwork titled "City Serenity" is going to be on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art this June-October 2018.
Students taking Ms. Badia's 7th and 8th Grade Urban Art Elective were introduced to three visual artists from around the world who create self portraits on city maps. Students brought in free subway maps from their own neighborhoods to use as their canvas. Upon analyzing the work of Ed Fairburn, Mark Powell, and Matthew Cusik students used the elements of art to describe their artwork. Emphasis was made on value, texture, and line throughout this lesson. Students were asked to practice drawing self portraits through observation by using a mirror. Students were able to use a range of drawing tools to help create a balanced drawing. Students were also able to use charcoal, drawing pencils, ink, and or colored pencils as their medium. Students made connections through visual arts during this lesson because they were able to relate their community and neighborhood to a drawing project. Many students use public transportation every day and consider it to be essential part of living in New York City.
