Artist of the Week
Congratulations to Stephanie, Salisbury Composite High School’s Artist of the Week for December 2nd – 6th. Stephanie has created a fantastic painting of Macklemore using acrylic paints. In order to create this image she had to first find a photo online and then manipulate that photo using Photoshop. She then had to draw the manipulated images onto the canvas and paint them. One particularly notable aspect of her painting is the texture that she created in the blue areas. Excellent work Stephanie!
