Over the past few weeks the teens in my Monday evening classes have explored 3-dimensional art in both paper mâché and in clay. The subject was to make sculptures inspired by faces, masks, or animals.
These projects were challenging. They had to come up with ideas and then build the structure underneath that would hold their creations together. They then had to build the paper mâché works and mold and sculpt the clay pieces.
After these pieces dried, they had to paint and embellish them. Thinking in terms of viewing their pieces from all sides added another level of design and problem solving.
Here are some of their fantastic work by these young artists!
