Mixed-media skeleton drawings

Ninth grade Studio Art students created these mixed-media compositions. Students first made contour drawings of a skeleton from observation. Next, they assembled their contour drawings to create background for their artwork.  Gesso and watercolor were added to create depth. Students then rendered their subject matter with the goal to create a three-dimensional illusion through the use of value shading. As a final touch students added elements of collage related to their subject matter to their artwork.

Medium: Sharpie, watercolor, acrylic gesso, charcoal,
color pencil, and collage.
