It is tradition at St. Raphael for each 8th grade student to paint a canvas of any subject for their last art project at SRS. Being my first year here, I continued this tradition in hopes of a "big bang" for the end of the year. I wish I would of started this project earlier because the end of the year is way too busy! The canvas's are so spectacular that it would have been awesome to have an 8th grade art show to display their amazing art work. Now I know for next year, right? :) From realistic to abstract, each student has their own style they are creating. Here is a look at the beginning stages of the canvas paintings created by the very talented and outstanding group of 8th grade students!
