Project Description

The project for this class will be inspired by the summer season! 

There are 3 parts to the class project:
1. Find an inspiration photo that represents summer to you
2. Build a palette based on the inspiration photo
3. Create a piece of art using your summer palette 

Please share the photo that inspired you, the palette and your final piece!

Also, if you post your work to Instagram, use the hashtag #skillsharegiagraham and I will re-post my faves!
