During the week of February 13, 2012, new student art began popping up in the front hallway, from stunning oversized self-portraits to small prints of graphic designs and leaf prints. Upper Schoolers created the self-portraits in Sara Macaulay's Figure Drawing Class as a culminating assignment. Earlier in the semester, Ms. Macaulay explains, girls often created quick multiple sketches of a figure in class, generally focusing on the pose and proportion rather than on details such as facial features. “Toward the end of the semester, I introduced them to the proportions of a 'generic' face and asked them to apply that to their own face,” she says. In Class III, teacher Sharon Gorberg guided girls to create reduction prints of leaves, using multiple color combinations. Julia Harrison’s Upper School Drawing, Painting and Sculpture class created graphic designs for one assignment, which required students to make three to four designs of varying colors and styles. “With each one,” Ms. Harrison explains, “they started by selecting a partial image that had been pre-cut from a magazine, placed it on an 8"x8" square, and created a design to incorporate it.” You can see samples of the artwork below, and if you are able, come to see it all in person!
