Fifth grade student Hope Wickersham's artwork has been accepted for the 2015 General Assembly Youth Art Exhibition in Raleigh, NC. Hope and her family are invited to a reception in Raleigh on March 16.
Hope's work is a paste paper landscape collage inspired by American artist Grant Wood's landscape paintings of the Midwest, integrated with the Fifth grade's farming expedition. Students first created paste papers by dragging tools through paint on paper to create texture and pattern. After papers dried, they cut them up to create foreground, middle ground and back ground, then added details with metallic papers.
