Fayetteville High School Art II students, in Jennie Roles-Walter’s class, recently completed detailed acrylic paintings they created in the Chuck Close gridded paint method.
The assignment took nearly four weeks to complete, painting 80 boxes, one at a time, to make up the image depicted on their canvas.
Students chose the prominent individuals that they painted.
The paintings were framed by Brenda Williams Roles of R.D. Williams Gifts and Framing, and a plaque with the artist’s name and title was engraved and mounted to the frames, compliments of Alison Heffington of The Wishing Well Engraving and Jewelry.
The paintings will be permanently displayed in the school’s foyer.
