I do a project with bones called "Dem Bones." I use horse bones from the
biology teacher. He had a complete horse in his room at one time but it has
decayed and is now in boxes. He just retired this year and gave me the
boxes. Now I will be able to do this project anytime I want.

It is an abstraction using a composition of contour drawings of the bones
complied with tracing paper into a design. Overlapping the drawings and
producing a composition, they use color schemes and paint a base coat of
colors and values. Next with sponges, they use a stencil and lightly sponge
the areas to produce a different effect.
