7th Grade Illuminated Letters

One of my favorite projects for the fifth year in a row. #WKMSArt.

This crayon wax resist focuses on several elements and principles including (but not limited to) color, texture, shape, line, pattern, emphasis, and variety. These richly colored, decorative pieces explore medieval art using a unique medium. Students were also asked to incorporate subject matter from the middle ages such as landscapes, plant-like images, mythological creatures, etc.
