Students at Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy in Marin City created many wonderful projects this year. They began with collage self-portraits after looking tabletop mirrors. They learned about proportions and scale when drawing faces. At the end of the year, students made a second self portrait using watercolor, pen and ink and. Their art was celebrated with an end-of-the-year display in the main building at school. Students also explored the theme of home and family in their work, creating paintings of their own homes and adding colorful birds and other adornments.
