MINI MAKERS (Kindergarten)
This morning Minis learned about SCULPTURE, SCALE and PORTRAITURE looking at Carl Milles’ Bronze Cast Running Horse on the steps of the Art Museum. Then the group constructed their own horse marionettes with paper towel, tissue paper bodies, and beaded string legs.
MOLD: Ceramics & Clay (1st-2nd)
Today 1st/2nd grade was all about glazing and painting. With all of last week’s ceramic projects fired, today the class added color and texture to surfaces. This afternoon, Mold created 3D relief paintings using plasticine clay, and shaped beads to create necklaces inspired by Egyptian ceramics.
DESIGN: Spaces & Places (3rd-4th)
Design started their morning with Girard-inspired bag collages to hold the weeks projects before moving on to a classroom mural – designing a collaborative dream house blueprint. This afternoon they visited Saarinen house and learned about Eero Saarinen’s role as exterior architect and interior designer.
EXPLORE: Art & Nature (5th-6th)
This morning Explore drew and printed on paper bags which will hold treasures found on nature walks throughout the week. Then the group began construction on paper mache cacti inspired by folk art cacti in Alexander Girard’s extensive collection. This afternoon, Explorers created nature body sculptures outdoors after Ana Mendieta’s Siluetas.
MOLD: Ceramics & Clay (7th-9th, teen workshop)
This morning, Mold visited the Cranbrook Institute of Science looking at jewelry in an anthropological context; as a signifier of personal style and status. Then students started making their own ceramic beads for jewelry and key chains.
