Summer Art Camp - Week Six - Totally Me

Isn't it grand being you?!
During art camp this past week, students thought about themselves and their interests.
They used clay, paint, collage and sculpture to produce works of art
based upon their perceptions about themselves. Enjoy your visual tour
into our wonderful, whimsical week.

~ Project 1 ~
Clay Face Plates and Clay figures

Rolling out clay - forming shape - adding facial details.

Painting detail onto bisque fired pottery.

~Project 2 ~
Name Silhouettes on Canvas

Sketching their names inside silhouette ~ painting letters black

Adding a vibrant color to the negative space.

~Project 3 ~
Papier Mache Sculptures

Creating the sculpture people out of a balloon head ~ box body ~ and newspaper

Adding collage materials and paint for detail and color.

And....last but not least....

Snack time and our art show.

Thank you for taking the time to view our productive week.
