Avid Eyes

These gigantic eyes reflect our exploration of artwork that hang in five galleries at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Each student created a triangular drawing that reference these great artworks from the past. Throughout the project the students’ individual drawings presented a main idea in their foreground and supporting details in their background. To create a collaborative artwork we arranged the students’ individual drawings around a central axis to form a new design. The gigantic eye design can be seen as the overall main idea, and the drawings throughout can be seen as the supporting details.
