Paintings for the New Wing of the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital

Paintings in Process

First my students create ideas on an 8x10 piece of paper and they submit them.

I have the very difficult task of choosing the ones that will be come paintings.
The student who drew the pictures chosen becomes the "Project Leader".

Then we use the document camera and projector to trace the idea on a large piece of paper.

They "Project Leader" chooses students that will help them turn their drawing into a painting.

They work as a team.  Adding their talents and ideas to the painting.

Then I bring the paintings to the Lafontsee Gallery and they take them and put them in beautiful frames and place them in the hospital for all to enjoy.
