Tupelo Middle School uses science in the art room...

Posted Jan 23, 10:39 AM

Students in Art Lab 7 taught by Mrs. Watson integrated science into their art studies with the study of the Mississippi Artist Walter Anderson and the discovery of gourd art. Students researched Walter Anderson to create their own Keynote presentation about his life and works. Then they studied his 7 motifs & used them in a radial symmetry design. Next, students found out where gourds came from and how they were grown. Their last challenge was to create their own gourd art.
