The Road to the Super Bowl Through the Art Room

MSMS students along with most of New England are excited to have the New England Patriots in this year’s Super Bowl.  Students in the art room are designing logos for their predicted winning team, as well as completing three large scale canvases in the next five days which celebrate the home team. Students are using their knowledge of the elements and principles of design to create their logos.

The fundamentals of color mixing, painting techniques and color theory are being used to complete the large scale canvases. This projects focuses on group work, cooperation, and most of all, students working together collaboratively to reach the set goal.

The Finished in 5! project began today at 7:40 and we are off to a great start!
