Layer & Scratch
Grade Level: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
Explore inner emotions using multiple layers and materials. The artist, Jesse Reno, uses trial and error, along with intuition to guide his process. Using wax pastels, acrylics and other media such as markers, many layers of imagery are created on a canvas panel. A fettling knife or tool allows scratching through layers to reveal the white of the canvas underneath. Is it finished? Only the artist knows.
