Upper School Aution Art - Rene Portocarrero Collaborative Unit


This canvas was created in the style of Rene Portocarrero by our Maclay Upper School Art Class with Kyle Maurey. Each illustration in the painting is a representation of a landmark in our city of Tallahassee, Florida. I think it turned out just so spectacular that I wanted to blog about it and share it with all of you guys!
