The cupcakes are finished!!

Overall, I am happy with how they turned out. When I do this project again, I am going to have the kids score and slip their base on to their cupcake top because they aren't sitting very well. I am also going to make everyone glaze because for the most part, the glazed cupcakes look a lot nicer. Here are some of the finished cupcakes!

7th grade 3D- Romero Britto Animal Sculpture

7th grade 3-D students finished up their clay cupcakes and were eager to begin their next project. We looked at the artwork of pop artist, Romero Britto. Britto is a painter and sculptor from Brazil who creates light-hearted, happy artwork using simple shapes, bright colors and lots of patterns. He took inspiration from Matisse and Picasso.

8th Grade Painting- Pop Art Portraits

Art Club- Packing Tape Sculptures

 I'm sure many of you have seen the packing tape sculpture craze all over Pinterest. As soon as I saw it at the beginning of the school year, I knew it was something I had to try with my art club kids. We looked at the artwork of Mark Jenkins. Jenkins is an American artist who creates packing tape installations. The kids loved his work. It was so fun and unexpected.
