• Stella Art Project

    Stella! 

    Ms. Sayani's Art I classes created individual paper shapes from their robot paintings and then drew numbers to create a live collaborative art piece in the NGHS Media Center.  Influenced by Frank Stella's Moby Dick series, the project changed over the class period as students moved paper on the board.   Students drew numbers and were able to move other student's pieces, depending on their number.  The art changed several times until the bell rang, and the work was done!
