Student Spotlight: Jonathan

   One of the most rewarding things as an art teacher is to have a student who takes art and runs with it.  I have had the pleasure of teaching Jonathan.  He is currently going into 8th grade and has a passion for “junk" art, experimenting and assemblages.  I have been so impressed by his work, I just had to share.  He has been updating me over the summer with his creations.  I hope you appreciate them as much as I do.
Above is one of his most recent pieces and my personal favorite!

Last summer at art camp students created junk assemblages. Above is one of Jonathan’s examples.  This is when I learned about his love for creating out of junk.

Below is a picture of Jonathan’s studio space in his basement…
Another great thing I love, is Jonathan documents his art on YouTube.  Check out/subscribe to his channel….

We did ATC’s in art club this year, check out some of his awesome creations…
