Hope Center members work to complete their symbol paintings for the Hope Center Auction.
Adding lines, color and texture have been many of the lessons the student members have explored through this year-long project.
Every week we have worked with the students we have had different students work on the paintings which has truly made this work a community effort.
Everyone has learned about symbols in the Christian church and symbols that we encounter in daily life.
Many of the symbols we see we take for granted, and many of the symbols we encounter we really don’t understand their meaning. Hope Center students have explored these ideas in this project.
It has been interesting to see what images have drawn the students interest and how they have interacted with the work.
It has been fun to see them interact and grow as they explore visual art.
Here are some examples of their work in progress.
The next post will show the next step as the students learn how to apply stencils and spray paint to their images.
