Shoe Show.......

I would like to share some images of paintings my 7th graders did. These are 15" x 21" in size and are painted in tempera paint.

We photographed their shoes in a background that they created using fabric, tissue paper or construction paper. I printed the photos and then we enlarged the picture using a grid method.

We had practiced many painting techniques prior their executing their final painting. 












Masterpieces, I think.

I agree. You are a 'shoe in' for the best art teacher ever!

Great shoe choices - they certainly are learning to paint well too. It was fun to look at each one and think of the student that painted it - and wore the shoe.

I am continuously amazed at the quality of work that you middle school art teachers are able to have your students produce! Kudos to you!!!

What an exciting project you planned for them! Love the colored tissue backgrounds. I still remember my art teacher in high school...I just loved her. Oh, and I'll take the pink pumps and the black mary janes. The paintings are vivid and wonderful and full of imagination. Thanks for sharing! ~Lili

I remember back when all we did in art class was to do drawings with charcoal and paper...Not very interesting for kids who want color. These are wonderful...
