Twelve students shared Artists of the Month honors for May at Washington Middle School.
The winners are Riley Yashinsky, Carly Kratz, Colter McCormick and Keith Archiquette, eighth grade; Jacob Fessenden, Lauren Saari, Naomi Whitehouse and Eden Witt, seventh grade; Alexandra Brown, Clayton Whiting, Gabrielle Konop and Simon Pumplun, sixth grade.
Student artwork consists of 3-D typography, watercolor painting and pastel eyes.
Eighth-grade students used various mediums to construct sculptures reflecting a typeface, such as paper mache, wire and quilling.
Seventh-grade students learned how to create a backwash using various watercolor techniques, such as “wet into wet” and “graded washes,” and to apply a foreground image.
Sixth-grade students used the pastel medium and applied blending and stippling techniques for a close-up composition.
The artwork is on display in the middle school art display case for the remainder of the year.
