scratchboard; 12×8.5″

“Working under the guidance of art teacher Jamie Schorsch, students at Oak Hills High School researched an individual, an icon of society, who has impacted and influenced society in a positive way. Using a stylus, with a variety of Scratchboard tools, they carefully observed details, textures, highlights, and shadows. They chose a term as a descriptor of the selected icon and included it in the work in order to summarize the individual’s life or characteristics.”
