This art project was created by Mr Soik’s 2016 Spring Semester Honors Humanities class in collaboration with Marty Carney, Artist-in-Residence at North High School for this semester. This was the second collaboration which Mr. Soik called “ArtPlosion.” This final art project was intimated by brainstorming between Mr Soik, Marty, and the students in the class. The overall pattern was created by one of the students to visualize the learning content about Western Civilization which the class had studied during the semester. Marty gathered supplies which would make the imagined project possible. Once the roots, text, and tree pattern was sketched onto the surface of a wood panel by the student, the rest of the class contributed images and quotes from their learning throughout the semester. Other artifacts were also attached by the students to enhance the overall artistic ambience. As you see, the finished project visualizes the creativity and vitality of their learning process.
