Grade 6 students used a grid system to enlarge their 6”x 9” photos to an 18”x 24” format for their self-portrait paintings. Then they worked with a favorite color and white to create the tints you see in these monochromatic paintings.
What color would your self-portrait be?
Tenacre Country Day School is an independent, co-educational elementary school (PreK-6) on Benvenue Street in Wellesley. Children come to the art room for art classes two class periods a week in grades 1-6; Kindergarten has art once a week. In cooperation with retail property owner EDENS, we hope you enjoy looking at this exhibit of art by Tenacre 6th grade students.
