James W. Parker Middle School fifth graders participated in a collaborative painting project. To kick off the project, art teacher Mrs. Martin introduced a style of painting called photorealism to the fifth grade students.

This genre of art provides the artist the opportunity to study a photograph and then attempt to reproduce the image as realistically as possible in another medium. Following the lesson, each student became responsible for painting one 3 in. by 4 in. square block, which made up a larger sketched picture.

Once complete, the blocks were reassembled to create the final portrait. Four portraits were created, one of Mr. Scaletta, one of Mr. Hansen, one of Mr. Buto and one of General John W. McLane. Fifth graders presented the portraits of Mr. Scaletta and General John W. McLane to superintendent, Rick Scaletta, on Friday, December 23rd.
