Library Chair Project

designs created by

8th Period Art Class
at
Romney Middle School

One of art teacher Terry Murray's classes spent the 2003-2004 school year working on a set of six chairs borrowed from the school library. The students searched through books and prints for an artist whose style particularly appealed to them. They then chose one specific work by that artist and tried to replicate that work on their chair. Of course, the chairs first had to be properly smoothed and sanded. Other students involved in helping with needed touch ups were Joshlyn J., Meggan E., Michelle K., Katie K., Dawn H. and Christina R.
Ms. Murray finished the chairs this summer by putting on a protective polyurethane coat. Five of the chairs will be placed in the school library and one will stay in the art room.
