Mushy Maché

We are having so much fun with papier maché and recycled materials this summer at the Decorative and Fine Arts Camp! Students help us amass a selection of cool shaped recyclables like berry containers cans and paper towel rolls and transform them into papier maché sculptures.


Planet Saved.

Here are some of the final results of what felt like months of hard work. It was, in fact, only a few weeks, but WHOA did my amazing, talented, and persistent students make some great stuff! Now our entire school community, and the attendees at last weeks TEDx event (more on that coming soon…) can see these works of art displayed. My students essentially created pop-up installations around our school building, decorating windows entryways and our upper school library. Enjoy!
