I first built the wood backing structure then cut scrap pieces of wood to be assembled in an interesting and pleasing design. To include students from 4th Ferretti/Love class I took the multiple pieces of scrap wood and had them each paint them with 5 different wash colors to allow wood grain to show through and to have their individual touches added to the final art piece. Once the wood pieces were painted by the students I continued to paint and stain some additional pieces of wood, then assembled the final design. Finished the art by spraying it with a matte finish clear coat and attached hanging hardware.
With all the separate beautiful colors and different types of wood and textures, I wanted these to represent all the wonderful kids at the school being from all different types of backgrounds and races, working together as one. Better Together title represents them working/living together not apart, we are ALL Better Together.
