Purim Illustrations and Masks

"This is a still life study of silverware using graphite. The lesson focused on the element of art, value, or the lightness and darkness of a color or shade of grey. I used highlight and shadow to create three dimensional form and the metallic surface quality of these utensils. "

Our talented art students worked hard to create masks and illustrations under the theme of Purim this year. These pieces were featured at the annual gala dinner and added to the ambiance and festivities of the evening. 
 
Masks were created using  paper mache and were then painted and decorated with various materials to evoke a sense of playfulness and fun. Many were inspired by traditional masquerade-style mask designs. 
 
While illustrations offered visual stories,  each representing a different moment in the Purim story. 
 
Congratulations and recognition to all involved in creating these beautiful pieces of art!
