Ms. Lin Walker's art classes, West End Middle School.After looking at the artwork of Chihuly and seeing how he was influenced by nature, the students worked on their own drawings. I gave each grade a different influence. Fifth Grade saw images of leaves. Sixth Grade saw trees. Seventh Grade looked at rocks. Eighth Grade looked at sea life.They used colored pencil, paint washes, oil pastel and charcoals. For many of the students, this was the first abstract art they had ever produced.
