Create Like the Great! Mixed-media Sculpture CM07

In Create Like the Great! we learn about artists who create(d) unusual and unique art. Explore the artist within you and create with clay, glaze, acrylics, plaster, beads, seeds, metal/colored wire, and recycled/found materials. Turn materials into whimsical functional items, hanging mobiles, figures and more. We have learned about and been influenced by artists exhibited at MoMA, the Whitney, MASS MoCA, the Hirshhorn Museum in D.C., Yale Art Museum, and galleries in Chelsea, New York and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Artists such as Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella, Yayoi Kusama, Jeff Koons, Bodys Isek Kingelez, Alexander Calder inspired our Create Like the Great! Artists. Their works of art will influence students to create their own masterpieces!

Art is lot of fun... but also very beneficial to children!* They learn: Dexterity (using their hands/fingers as tools), visual awareness (hand/eye coordination), how to explore their curiosity, shapes and how they relate to each other, math skills and measuring, how to work with others and take pride in accomplishment!
