pOp ArT FoOd SCulpTuReS
Fourth graders can't wait for the time when they get to make food sculptures. We discuss what it means to be a Pop Artist and look at the work of Claes Oldenburg. They love seeing his huge upside down ice cream cone on the roof (Eistute) and Spoonbridge with Cherry. The students first choose a food that they want to re-create and using past clay building techniques decide how they will build their food. Once the food is made it is fired in the kiln, then painted. The students work on how they want to present their food and have a hand in taking it to the library and setting it on display.
