8th grade sculpture- Eric Carle Relief Tiles

The 8th grade sculpture class looked at the artwork of one of my favorite children's author/illustrator, Eric Carle. I love his playful use of color and texture.

They had to create a tile using high relief, low relief and sunken relief. The subject matter was an Eric Carle animal (although some chose to use a different animal). Students also had to create a foreground, middle ground and background and incorporate texture. The finished tiles were glazed using lots of bright colors. Here are the results...
