It was a busy Wednesday morning with 5/6 A&B students in the art room. They all eagerly applied paper mache to their ice cream and donut sculptures. Students faced a number of challenges along the way such as collapsing cones and sliding scoops of ice cream, but with some advise and modelling they were able to successfully solve these problems.
Now these sculptures need a good few days to dry and harden!
Next week we will be exploring a variety of artworks by Claes Oldenburg and Wayne Thiebaud. Oldenburg is an American sculptor, best known for his public art installations typically featuring large replicas of everyday objects. Thiebaud is an American painter, widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects such as lipsticks and paint cans as well as food items including ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogs.
Students will draw on these artists and their artworks as inspiration for painting and detailing their Pop Art sculptures.
