High School East student-artists in Dianne Shanian’s painting 1 class are working on collages that depict current societal issues. After studying the works of collage painter Romare Bearden, the students chose a topic to portray on the canvas. Using different mixed materials, fabrics and textures, the collages are meant to evoke an emotional response and touch on topics such as homelessness, drug addiction and depression.
