Adding Warhol Projects to Mini Galleries

Apologies for the audio. My students get very enthusiastic as they are working on the grid. As they complete their Warhol projects in Gimp, they will upload them to the Jokaydia Grid and place them in their galleries.
They are still struggling with the design principle of unity and some of the galleries look more like mini garage sales, but in time they will become more unified in style.
At the Jr. High age, you need to give students some flexibility in working so they can play around with textures and shapes. An aesthetic sensibility is years in the making and these students are really just beginning to form their own artistic choices.

More Mini Gallery Work

Some of the students have a small sitting area for their gallery while others have not been as productive.

Mini Galleries

Students put their names on the gallery of their choice and are now creating seating for their space. They are to put any digital or photos of real work into the galleries such as Wordles or Warhol projects.
