Golden Icons at Richstone
Friends of Redondo Beach Arts supports the work of eight docents who travel monthly to the Richstone Center in Hawthorne to present Hands On Art projects for their K – 8 after school program. Students learn art history and are able to experience a variety of art media.
The project for November was Golden Icons. Students learned about hieroglyphics and bas-relief, a sculpture technique in which figures and/or other design elements are just barely more prominent than the overall flat background. Students created a design on wax paper with black Model Magic. Then they transferred the design to a black tile and embellished the relief with gold paint.
Below is a gallery of student work.
